    I'm thinking that's a typo. But regardless, good signing. We're in desperate need of some secondary depth.

    Ty Law to visit with Jets

    by rich cimini

    Ancient CB Ty Law, formerly of the Patriots, Jets and Chiefs, is making a free-agent visit Wednesday with the Jets, according to the NFL Network.

    My two-word reaction: Oh, brother.

    If the Jets sign Law, whom they released two years ago, it would reek of desperation. The Jets’ offseason already is starting to look that way, but this would be capper. Aside from the fact that he’s old (34) and slow, the once-great Law wouldn’t be a good locker-room guy.

    In the 2005, the year it all spiraled out of control under Herm Edwards, Law acted like a prima donna and wasn’t a good influence around the younger players, I’m told. Sure, he knows Eric Mangini (they spent five years together in New England) and, yes, he’s friends with Darrelle Revis (a homey from Aliquippa, Pa.), but take my word for it: This wouldn’t work.

    He's definitely not what he was, but at the least he gives us depth at the position. He's not a #1 CB anymore, but he's probably a short-term upgrade as the #2 guy.

    Not that i'm so down on Lowery, but he could use some time to learn the position.

    WOW! Did Cimini really put "Homey from Aliquippa, PA"? Revoke this mans credibility on everything. Is he serious?

    Exactly. He's not starting at corner or anything. It's a great move to add some veteran experience to the secondary. Law will play in nickle and dime situations.

    Chatman is on IR I think, so I guess the Jets gave his number away?

    if he is a slow as people say he is, this has defensive holding and automatic first downs written all over it

    One must HAVE credibility before it can be revoked.

    I don't mean to be pessimistic, and I hope he can help, but you would have to think he'll be a step behind (at least), and I could envision him being called for some big PI penalties.

    To a degree I do too, but he's always been a Turnover machine.

    I think that Law is a great addition. If you think about it, every aspect of this team has a sage veteran that has played for a winning franchise deep into the playoffs, except the secondary.

    Law is a guy Mangini trusts, a guy that Revis idolizes and a guy that gives the defensive secondary the type of veteran that can keep the young fellas' minds right as the Jets make a push for the playoffs.

    I can see Law rotating in at safety and corner, and more importantly being a GREAT mentor to both Lowery and continuing with his already established relationship with Revis.

    Bravo Mangini!

    Adds some veteran stability to the second corner spot...we'll if he can play..its low risk high reward..

    as for the jersey number..i think it is a typo..he was saying that revis is honoring him by wearing his number 24...at least i hope..

I think Law might replace Elam at Safety when he gets his legs under him, but right now he'll probably play the nickel
    Ham I like Elam at S rather than envisioning Law trying to come up to hit some RB's. Passing situations, possibly.

    I dont think Law has anything left in the tank. He was awful with Kansas City. Watching him try to cover any of these guys with any speed could be tough.
