"He's a plugger in the middle," said an Oklahoma spokesman. "He's strong and smart and provided a good compliment to Tommy Harris."
Harper will battle Alan Harper for the fifth defensive tackle spot, if they keep that many.
Also signed was Idaho cornerback Rod Bryant. He is a product of the University of Idaho, who returned both kicks and punts for the Vandals. The Jets are looking for a kickoff returner, and Bryant will be a contestent in that battle.
He's also a decent cornerback, who had two picks last season. Bryant has excellent size for the cornerback position at a little under 6-2. and 195 pounds. And he runs well for a player his size, clocking a 4.49 forty.
And for the third time in less than a week, they added a Miami Hurricane linebacker by signing Jarrell Weaver. He never started at Miami, but was a top special teams players. He was one of the fastest linebackers in the draft, with 4.46 speed. However, he might be a little undersized to play linebacker in the NFL at 6-2, 215 pounds. His meal ticket in New York is clearly on special teams.
