Is right tackle Jack Conklin headed to the New York Jets? It depends who you ask?
On Sunday, Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio announced on his website: “Per a league source, one NFL team has been informed that Conklin plans to sign with the Jets when free agency opens on March 18.”
Then ESPN’s Adam Schefter had an entirely different announcement on Twitter:
“Titans OT Jack Conklin will have many suitors in free agency, but he is not expected to land with offensive-line-needy Jets, per sources. Jets like him, but the competition for him will be intense and there will be many suitors.”
So you decide which announcement you want to believe.
Conklin is represented by agent Drew Rosenhaus.
The Titans didn’t pick up Conklin’s fifth-year option, so that makes him a free agent this year. They didn’t pick up his option because he struggled in 2018, but he did rebound to play a lot better in 2019.
