New York Jets sign ex-Titans IOL Corey Levin (Report)

Levin, 26, is the latest New York Jets signee after prior stops in Tennessee, Denver, Chicago, and New England.

Per Connor Hughes of The Athletic, the New York Jets are set to sign interior lineman Corey Levin. The 2017 draftee last played in 2018, partaking in all 16 games for the Tennessee Titans.


Levin has confirmed his signing with New York through a tweet depicting the Jets’ social media slogan “#TakeFlight” followed by several emojis featuring jets.

Levin entered the league as a sixth-round choice of the Titans, emerging from FCS Chattanooga. He was a three-time All-American with the Mocs and won the Southern Conference’s top blocking award twice (one of only 11 protectors to do so). The Mocs enjoyed an unprecedented run of football success, appearing in the FCS playoffs three times and winning a program-record 10 games in 2014. The Chattanooga Times Free Press named one of the top five Mocs of the 2010s.

All of his NFL action came in the aforementioned 2018 season, starting one game in a Tennessee uniform. He played 140 offensive snaps, split between left guard, center, right guard, and a bit of in-line tight end as a sixth offensive lineman. However, he didn’t fare all too well with a measly Pro Football Focus grade of 54.3 that season (20th percentile among qualified IOL).

Levin spent two days on New England’s practice squad in 2020 after spending the 2019 season on Chicago’s.

Despite a relatively sparse NFL resume, Levin will likely have a good opportunity to return to an NFL regular season roster. The Jets have struggled to upgrade their blocking this offseason, an endeavor that becomes all the more vital with a new rookie quarterback almost assuredly on his way over with the second overall choice in the 2021 NFL Draft draft in three weeks.

The Jets were able to start their blocking reclamation project by draft Mekhi Becton 11th overall in the last draft, but last season’s veteran free agent signings (George Fant, Greg Van Roten, Connor McGovern among them) failed to make a significant impact.

Prior to Levin’s signing, the Jets’ only offensive line addition of the 2020 offseason was Dan Feeney, formerly of the Los Angeles Chargers, though fellow newcomer Tyler Kroft has received positive reviews for his work as a blocking tight end.

It appears that in Feeney & Levin the Jets are looking for quick Athletic OG’s rather than powerful phone booth guys. If AVT or Jenkins are at 23 they will pick them in a heart beat. But it seems that the Jets will try to solve their IOL problem with mid rounders..Levin is a guy at possibly the end of his rope, a small school athletic player, who has served on a couple of practice squads learning his craft, could be ready to compete against two below average Guards. Jets could save 3 or 5 million. Like Cory’s chances.
