A linebacker who could interest the Jets in free agency Dan Leberfeld

This isn’t a name you will hear much connected to the Jets, but he certainly could help them . . .

The Jets need to improve the instincts around C.J. Mosley, so Atlanta Falcons free agent linebacker Foye Oluokun could be a good fit for them. Aside from being fast (4.48 forty at the Combine) the Yale graduate is also very instinctive, finishing last season with 193 tackles.

Keep in mind that Oluokun played for Jets defensive coordinator Jeff Ulbrich from 2018-20 with the Falcons, where the current Jets assistant was the linebacker coach, and then was interim defensive coordinator in 2020, after HC Dan Quinn was fired in-season.

So Oluokun and Ulbrich have a strong relationship, and the player would come in already knowing the system

Last season with the Falcons, Oluokun had three interceptions. The Jets had no linebacker interceptions last year. This needs to change.

So the St. Louis-native, who was a high school teammate of Dallas Cowboys RBĀ Ezekiel Elliott, could be a good fit for the Jets in free agency.
