JEFF OTAH’S TRADE IS IN LIMBO, DUE TO FAILED PHYSICAL TEST WITH JETS
Fri, 03 Aug 2012 10:42 PM EDT

The veteran OT Jeff Otah failed his physical again with the Jets, meaning New York’s trade with Carolina was rescinded. Otah was acquired by the Jets last Monday, but failed his 1st physical and was placed on the active-physically unable to perform list.

”Jeff failed to fulfill the terms and conditions of the trade, so he’s on the way to Carolina and he’ll remain with the Panthers,” Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum asserted. Basketball betting lines

He declined to say if New York Jets had the chance to extend the cut off point for Otah.

”We had a week, and we took the 7 days,” Tannenbaum claimed.

Otah was sidelined the majority of the last 2 seasons by a nagging knee injury, but N.Y traded a conditional draft pick to Carolina for the previous 1st-rounder to bump right tackle Wayne Hunter for the starting job.

Panthers’ GM Marty Hurney recounted he’ll meet with Otah in Spartanburg, S.C.

Otah will have a new physical at that point before the Panthers (20, AP Pro32) decide whether to turn on him to the roster or keep him on the active-PUP list, according to Hurney. Once that decision is created, the Panthers will judge whether to keep him, trade him again or simply release him. Hurney expounded there were other teams curious about Otah before the trade with the N.Y Jets.

”I think you always keep everything open, but till we sit down with Jeff, it’s tough to say a lot,” Hurney claimed. ”So that will be the 1st step to meet with him, we’ll go from there.”

Hunter struggled mightily last season in his 1st stint as a full time starter with the Jets (17, AP Pro32).

”No query, he’s our starting RT – until that changes,” Tannenbaum declared of Hunter. ”We’ve been very clear with Wayne with where he stands, but he’s our RT.”

Tannenbaum is high on some of the more youthful linemen the Jets have in camp, including Austin Howard, but wouldn’t cross out bringing in a proven vet to test Hunter.

”We’ll keep looking for opportunities to improve the team as they may or may not come along, and we’ll go from there,” Tannenbaum claimed.

The 26-year-old Otah played in only 4 games last season, then went on hurt reserve Oct. 19 with a left knee injury. He has missed 31 of his last 35 games. Otah worked off to one side with Jets trainers during practice since camp opened last Friday.

”Jeff gave us a fairly good week,” Tannenbaum said. ”He’s a really nice guy. Beyond that, he’s a member of the Carolina Panthers now, so that’s all I can actually say. He probably did everything we asked for the previous week.”

Panthers coach Ron Rivera announced he’s been impressed by left tackle Jordan Gross and the 3 players competing for the RT spot Otah once held. Byron Bell is working with the starters, while Garry Williams and Bruce Campbell are competing for time.

”What our four tackles have done for us has been outstanding,” Rivera said. ”I’m very happy and thrilled about what they’re doing.”
