Brodney Pool Profile
The New York Jets have decided to take a flyer on talented but concussion-suffering S Brodney Pool, according to ESPN and the New York Daily News. The deal is for one year and $1.3 million.
The former second-round pick has been a starter for the Browns over the last several years, but has suffered at least five concussions over that time, throwing his long-term prospects into doubt. The Browns surprisingly did not tender Pool with the other restricted free agents, possibly due to injury concerns.
Similarly, the Browns allowed S Sean Jones to leave through free agency last year, as Jones was coming off some extended time on the IR. Jones wound up signing a one-year deal with the Eagles.
