The New York Jets will officially announce their undrafted free agent signings later this week, but here are some of the players that, according to various sources, have been signed by the Gang Green: CB Donovan Warren (Michigan), DT Mick Williams (Pittsburgh), SS Cory Reamer (Alabama), OG Charlie Tanner (Texas), WR Philip Kirkland (Bethune-Cookman), DE Kevin Basped (Nevada), WR/TE Jeff Cumberland (Illinois) and OT Keith Buckman (North Dakota State). S Marcus Ezoff (California) will be invited to rookie minicamp on a tryout basis.
The New York Jets didn't waste any time to claim former Vikings WR Aundrae Allison off waivers this afternoon. Allison, 25, is a 2-year veteran who was drafted by the Minnesota Vikings in the 5th round of the 2007 NFL Draft.
Contrary to various reports that the Jets might be interested in troubled CB Adam "Pacman" Jones, the New York Daily News reports that the Jets have no desire to deal with the 25-year old cornerback who's had various legal issues throughout his career. Besides Jones' unpredictable behavior, signing him would make little sense as the Gang Green are pretty much set at cornerback where they have Darrelle Revis and recently acquired Lito Sheppard as their starters.
As soon as the 2009 NFL Draft concluded, the Jets, along with other NFL teams, rushed to grab the best undrafted talent. We've learned from various sourced that the Gang Green thus far have signed the following undrafted free agents:
The New York Jets have agreed to terms with unrestricted free-agent DL Howard Green on a one-year deal. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Head coach Rex Ryan lured his second starter from the Baltimore Ravens when the New York Jets reached a 3-year deal with safety S Jim Leonhard on Tuesday. Leonhard, 26, is a 4-year veteran who joined Baltimore last season after spending the first two seasons of his NFL career with the Buffalo Bills. He played in all 16 games for the Ravens, registering 69 tackles (55 solo), 1 sack and 1 interception.
The New York Jets made their first move in free agency as they reached an agreement with LB Bart Scott. Scott, a 7-year veteran, spent his entire career with the Baltimore Ravens. Last season he registered 82 total tackles (61 solo), 1.5 sacks and forced 2 fumbles.
According to ESPN, CB Ty Law agreed to a one-year deal with the New York Jets on Monday and is set to play Thursday night against the Patriots. Ty Law, five-time Pro Bowler, spent the 2005 season with the Jets, intercepting career-high 10 passes.
