It looks as though Tully Banta-Cain could be the latest face of the ongoing Border War between the Patriots and Jets.

According to Scout.com, Banta-Cain will visit Rex Ryan and the Jets on Tuesday.

Banta-Cain basically ran himself out of New England when he put off abdominal surgery until just days before the open of training camp. He has reportedly recovered well from the procedure, however, and even passed a physical last week while visiting the Oakland Raiders.

The Jets have been active players in the market for an athletic linebackerdefensive end who can pass-rush. They released former first-round pick Vernon Gholston during the preseason and then quickly signed and released Aaron Maybin, another former first round pick of the Buffalo Bills.

Banta-Cain, 30, was one of the Patriots' most frequently-used pass-rushers last season under Bill Belichick and recorded 45 tackles, five sacks and one fumble recovery.
