NFL Free Agency is officially here, and the next few days will feature several New York Jets rumors. The Jets have already made several big moves and might not be done yet. With that in mind, here are a few of the more interesting rumors and news tidbits on the Jets.
Robert Griffin III visits Jets, could be backup option
RG3 has expressed interest in joining several teams with a quarterback need, including the Broncos, Rams, and 49ers, but he is visiting the Jets today.

New York is hoping to bring him in to backup Ryan Fitzpartick, but with those two sides being very far apart in negotiations, he could be the team's next option as a starter.
Brian Hoyer another possibility?
The Houston Texans are expected to part ways with Brian Hoyer "sooner rather than later" after signing Brock Osweiler, and New York is a very likely landing spot, reports NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Hoyer passed for 2,606 yards, 19 touchdowns, and seven interceptions in 11 games last season.
Jets also hosting Beachum
Offensive lineman Kelvin Beachum became a free agent when he and the Steelers couldn't come to an agreement before the new league year started on March 9. Beachum is also taking full advantage of his free agent status, visiting the New York Jets today.
The Ravens and Seahawks have also expressed interest in Beachum, and the Steelers are trying to re-sign him as well.Back to the New York Jets Newsfeed
