The long-time New England Patriot hits free agency and would be an ideal candidate for the New York Jets at right tackle. Brown has spent time between both left and right tackle positions with the Patriots and the Raiders throughout his nine-year career.

The Jets could plug Brown into either left or right tackle replacing Mekhi Becton or Duane Brown who are expected to depart in free agency. The Patriots tackle would bring a champion's mentality to the Jets locker room and to a younger offensive line group.

4. Jonah Williams - Tackle

The Jets will likely add a tackle in the draft however, whether it's a right or left tackle is out of control. This would make Jonah Williams an attractive option as the former first-round pick has experience playing both right and left tackle. Williams could provide the Jets with solid tackle play on either side of the football while providing the team with a veteran presence.

The former first-round pick never reached the full potential he once had coming out of college, however he's still a solid tackle in a league with below-average tackle play. At 26 years old Williams could play himself into a long-term option for the Jets if things were to pan out.
