Jack Conklin is going to cash in this offseason. Still just 25 years old, Conklin finished the 2019 season with the eighth-highest pass blocking win rate (92 percent) among all tackles. That kind of production should make him one of the most sought-after lineman in free agency this offseason.
While there have been some rumors linking him to the New York Jets, there will likely be plenty of competition for his services. With that in mind, here are the three most likely destinations for the Tennessee Titans' tackle in free agency.
1. New York Jets
There have been quite a few rumors linking Conklin to the Jets. Where there's smoke, there's fire, and New York is a natural landing spot for Conklin. The Jets were league average (No. 16) in pass blocking win rate, and adding a talent like Conklin could really help Sam Darnold's development.
2. Cleveland Browns
On average, the Cleveland Browns gave Baker Mayfield an average of just 2.3 seconds in the pocket last season, putting them in a five-way tie for the worst mark in the NFL. That lack of consistency likely contributed to Mayfield's sophomore slump, and if they want to maximize his talents then rebuilding the O-Line would be a great place to start. Armed with about $58 million in cap space, the Browns can afford to make a big-time signing this offseason.
3. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are in an interesting spot this offseason. The team is undoubtedly talented, but Jameis Winston's 30 interceptions made life difficult for Bruce Arians' squad in 2019. Regardless of whether or not Winston is back under center next season, the Bucs could use an upgrade on the offensive line. They ranked No. 17 in pass blocking win rate, and currently have the third-most cap space in the NFL. Bringing Conklin in would make a whole lot of sense.
