It is an important situation because if the Jets go into the draft with their current safety situation, chances increase greatly they take Barron at #16. And there's a concern that Barron isn't the answer in a weak draft for safeties. He may not be good enough to step into a starting role in the NFL.
If they sign Nelson, they can focus on RT and/or OLB which is another area of need and the FA market for a good RT will be expensive (Eric Winston being the only one that makes sense).
