Karl Noa leaves for New York on Wednesday for a tryout with the Jets. He’ll get his chance at the minicamp starting Friday.
Noa said it’s potentially a good fit for him, because at 6-4 and 250 he’s the prototype size for outside linebacker in the 3-4 defense, which the Jets use.
There’s still plenty of time for others to make a move up the depth chart, but as of the end of spring, it appears Aaron Kia has the edge at left tackle and Inoke Funaki at quarterback. Jameel Dowling may also have moved ahead at right corner after a strong Warrior Bowl performance.
The coaches looked at the Warrior Bowl tape today. We’ll try to get their evaluations.
There may have been an email from Herman Frazier to June Jones or Leigh Steinberg regarding the $400,000 Jones contends Frazier said he wouldn’t have to pay back to UH if he left early. If that’s the case, Jones may be off the hook.
