Would David Bakhtiari Still Make Signing Sense for Jets?

Following the draft selection of Olu Fashanu and the free agent signing of Tyron Smith, the New York Jets can confidently say they have solved their left tackle issues of the past few years.

Could they still look to add another veteran? Especially one with a consistent relationship with their starting quarterback?

When it comes to David Bakhtiari, Aaron Rodgers knows full well the type of tackle he can be when healthy. With two All-Pros and multiple Pro Bowls to their credit, the former Packer has been consistent throughout his 11-year NFL career.

That doesn't necessarily mean he would be needed for the Jets this season, though.

With Smith and Fashanu now with the organization, depth at the tackle position isn't necessarily a position of true need.

But you can never have enough depth - especially when your team has gone through over 10 different offensive linemen in each of the last two seasons.

With Bakhtiari still available in free agency, he could be a nice contingency plan for the Jets should something unfortunate happen to the injury-prone Smith. Sure, Bakhtiari has plenty of injury concerns on his own, but adding him to the team late in camp would mean he's fresh for the new season, while also allowing a player like Fashanu to cross-train at other positions.

It's unlikely New York will make a move for Roders' former blindside protector, but teams can never be too sure when it comes to injuries. That's why Bakhtiari as a potential signing isn't totally out of the realm of possibility.
