Odds to Sign: 25 percent
With three soon-to-be free-agent starting offensive lineman, there is no way the Jets are going to be able to keep all three.
Austin Howard will likely be the higher priority simply because of the position he plays at right tackle (in accordance with his youth), which likely leaves the Jets to let at least one guard, either Brandon Moore or Matt Slauson, leave.
Slauson's future with the team was all but over when Rex Ryan decided to rotate Vladimir Ducasse every third series at left guard, seemingly to prepare for life without Slauson.
Meanwhile, Moore had a another solid season, performing much better in the run game while remaining stellar in protection. However, at 32, Moore could start to decline at any time and is not likely to take any kind of discount in what could be his final big paycheck of his career.
There was also this nugget of insider information released on Thursday, which only lessens the odds of a Moore return from Alex Marvez:
I expect the Jets to at least try to keep Moore, but it appears as if their cap situation will prevent them from retaining one of the veteran leaders.
