John Fox on his top three priorities in 2018

The New York Jets coach is looking to add some competition for a roster that has been missing three starting offensive linemen this season.

In a Monday interview with CBSSports.com, Fox said he is considering taking one of the free-agent offensive linemen he could potentially sign to compete for a starting role, though he did not specify which players he would target.

“I have to be honest with you, I don’t have a lot of names in my mind right now,” Fox said.

We brought in some great players from the (Jets) organization. “

That’s what we have done a couple of times.

The Jets’ offensive line struggled through a year without starters Jonathan Martin, Kevin Zeitler and Laken Tomlinson, and it’s been an open question whether the Jets could compete for the top spot in the AFC East with two of their top three offensive linemen locked up for another year. “

And we’re going to bring in some quality players in free agency as well.”

The Jets’ offensive line struggled through a year without starters Jonathan Martin, Kevin Zeitler and Laken Tomlinson, and it’s been an open question whether the Jets could compete for the top spot in the AFC East with two of their top three offensive linemen locked up for another year.

But the Jets will have two more offensive linemen than last year if they stay healthy and they should have at least one more in 2018.

Fox also addressed a number of issues on the offensive line, including his desire to keep all of the starters on the roster.

The Jets have been underwhelming this season, finishing in last place in scoring defense and allowing an NFL-high 32.4 points per game.

But they still have four starters and three veterans on their roster.

The Jets signed two free-agents in free-agency — tackle Brandon Scherff and left tackle D’Brickashaw Ferguson — to help address some of the offensive issues.

Scherff and Ferguson are both under contract for next season.

“You have to get back to playing hard and be competitive,” Fox told CBSSports, which will air the interview live Monday.

We played some good football in the preseason and we’ll be ready to go.””

We had some good weeks in the last few years.

We played some good football in the preseason and we’ll be ready to go.”

Fox said he will take into account the position of each player on his roster and try to get them to be productive.

“It’s not about who you have, but what you bring,” Fox added.

“I think our guys are going to do a great job.”

Fox, who had four seasons of at least 30 wins as the Jets’ head coach before the organization was sold to Jerry Reese, is under contract through 2021.

He also will be eligible to make a $3.4 million signing bonus.
