Panthers veteran Otah traded to the New York Jets

July 23, 2012

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — The New York Jets have acquired tackle Jeff Otah from the Carolina Panthers for an undisclosed conditional draft choice.

Otah spent four seasons with the Panthers after being a first-round draft choice (19th overall) in 2008. He started all 29 games that he played.

But last season, he played in only four games, then went on injured reserve on Oct. 19 with a left knee injury. He has missed 31 of his last 35 games.

The Jets need depth on their offensive line, and Otah could push right tackle Wayne Hunter for a starting job if Otah is healthy. Hunter struggled at times in 2011, his first year as a full-time regular.
