Jets close to signing Bubba Franks

Posted Mar 16, 2008

The Jets are close to signing former Green Bay Packers Bubba Franks. The announcement was made by Dave Hutchinson.

"The Jets, determined to improve upon last season's 4-12 debacle, are continuing one of their busiest offseasons and are close to signing three-time Pro Bowl tight end Bubba Franks, according to two people with knowledge of the negotiations," wrote Hutchinson in the Newark Star-Ledger. "Those people spoke on condition of anonymity because talks are ongoing. An official announcement could come as early as tomorrow, when the Jets begin their offseason program."
