The Jets are adding ex-Eagles guard Nate Herbig.
A 17-game Eagles starter over the past two years, Herbig received an Eagles RFA tender in March and signed it in April. The Eagles, however, cut bait after a draft that included a second-round selection of center Cam Jurgens.
Prior to the arrivals of Jurgens and 2021 second-round pick Landon Dickerson, however, Herbig worked as a 12-game starter for the Eagles in 2020. Brandon Brooks‘ full-season absence freed up a guard spot for Herbig, who originally caught on with the Eagles as a 2019 UDFA.
The Eagles also turned to Herbig for five starts last season. Although he landed the Jets GM job soon after the 2019 draft, Joe Douglas was still with the Eagles when they signed Herbig.
