Jeff Otah trade rescinded: Jets won't acquire injury-prone offensive lineman
Right tackle Jeff Otah will not play for the New York Jets after all, reports The New York Daily News' Manish Mehta on Twitter.
The Panthers agreed to send the often-injured Otah to the Jets, but the deal was conditioned on the offensive lineman passing his physical within seven days, which will not happen.
Both teams have now confirmed Mehta's report.
When the Jets acquired Otah, there was hope he could give the team help at right tackle. Otah, a former first-round pick, has played well when healthy.
