Jets sign versatile O-lineman Wes Schweitzer
The Jets bolstered their depth on the offensive line by signing former Washington Commanders guard and center Wes Schweitzer on Thursday.
The signing of Schweitzer helps offset the losses of Dan Feeney, who agreed to a deal with Miami, and Nate Herbig, who signed with Pittsburgh. Terms of the deal for Schweitzer weren’t immediately available.
The 29-year-old Schweitzer spent the last three seasons with Washington. He played in seven games last season, including six starts, and played right guard and center. He has taken snaps at every position on the O-line during his six NFL seasons, but mostly at left and right guard.
Schweitzer was a sixth-round draft pick by Atlanta in 2017 out of San Jose State and played three seasons with the Falcons.
NOTES: The Jets officially announced the re-signing of K Greg Zuerlein, who set the franchise record with a 60-yard field goal last season. Zuerlein’s contract is for one year with a base salary of $1.75 million.
