Jets fill big need not talked about enough Dan Leberfeld

Some people might look at it as a nondescript May signing to fill out the roster.

But it’s much more than that.

The Jets are signing veteran defensive tackle Al Woods according to the agency, SportsTrust Advisors.

This is a very important signing.

Woods fills a big need.

The Jets needed to find a massive run-stuffing defensive tackle this off-season. They got gashed up the middle on the ground too much the last couple of years, due to defensive tackles getting engulfed by guards and centers.

The 6-4, 330-pound Woods has made a living during a dozen years in the NFL being an immovable object in the middle of defensive lines making it very hard to run up the middle.
