    That was the discussion Tanny had with Hunter yesterday after practice.

    Smart move - Austin Howard will only get better with experience.

    While Howard can't possibly be worse than Hunter (he can't be.. right?) I really hope this isn't our 'solution' at RT.. they should bring in a few guys once roster cuts are made

    if howard is better at run blocking then the move is good even if they're the same in pass protection. hunter gets no push.

    Austin Howard

    Professional career

    Philadelphia Eagles

    Howard was signed by the Philadelphia Eagles as an undrafted free agent following the 2010 NFL Draft on April 27, 2010.[10] He made the 53-man roster and played in four games, starting at left tackle in one game.
    In order to better fit into new offensive line coach Howard Mudd's system, Howard lost about 15 pounds to get down to 330 pounds.[11] However, he was waived during final roster cuts on September 3, 2011.
    Baltimore Ravens

    Howard was signed to the Baltimore Ravens' practice squad on September 6, 2011.
    New York Jets

    The New York Jets signed Howard to their active roster off the Ravens' practice squad on November 25, 2011.[12]

    You mean the Jets are banned from making trades or picking players that are cut? You have a link to that?

    Rex did say in the press conference something along the lines:

    'Tannebaum is always looking for things to do, we're always evaluating each position, you have no idea who's going to be cut before the season starts and what players will be let go by any and each team'

    And I believe he said that in reference to possibly upgrading that RT position even after the fact Hunter was already replaced.

    Howard might not be very good at all, he can't be worse than Hunter. Maybe he can at least learn to hold.

    Anyone is better than Hunter.

    But lets not act like our problems are solved.

    Per the tweets, jets exploring trade for RT(not earth shattering).

    Demotion related to Hunter missing practice yesterday?

    What a train wreck.
