Looks like the rivalry and signing away players between the Jets and Patriots hasn’t lost any of its luster despite Eric Mangini moving on to be the head coach in Cleveland. According to Boston Globe reporter Mike Reiss, the Patriots are close to signing Jets FA TE Chris Baker.
Baker was released by the Jets leading up to the opening on free agency due to a fat roster bonus he was due in early March. He’s arguably one of the best blocking tight ends on the market and offers some playmaking ability in the pass game, though he’s not a game breaker.
