The New York Jets continue to reshape their roster with the signing of several free agent players. Here is a recap.
Antwan Barnes : Outside linebacker/San Diego Chargers/23.5 career sacks. A veteran player that can rush the passer and will compete for a starting spot.
Mike Goodson: Running back/Oakland Raiders/722 career rushing yards. A interesting back with quickness that could flourish in the west coast offense.
Willie Colon: Offensive lineman/Pittsburgh Steelers. A veteran offensive lineman that can play both guard and tackle.
Antonio Garay: Defensive tackle/San Diego Chargers/138 tackles. A player that should help replace Mike Devito and Sione Po'uha.
Nick Folk: The Jets kicker the last 3 seasons. 21/27 on attempts in 2012.
Tanner Purdum: The team's long snapper since 2010.
