NEW YORK (AP) — A person familiar with the deal says the New York Jets have agreed to terms on a one-year contract with Brodney Pool, keeping the veteran safety in coach Rex Ryan’s secondary.
Pool signed with the Jets last offseason after spending his first five NFL seasons with the Cleveland Browns. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the team had not announced the deal.
Pool, 27, had 53 tackles, a sack and an interception in 15 games, including 12 starts, for the Jets. He adds depth to a position that was a bit thin for New York. Ryan has said recently re-signed Eric Smith will start opposite Jim Leonhard, but Pool is expected to see lots of playing time.
