Jets sign DT and CB/KR, and another Hurricane

The Jets signed two more undrafted free agents. One who is very similar to Alan Harper, and the other who will compete for the kick returner job. They also added yet another Hurricane.

The Jets signed Oklahoma defensive tackle Kory Klein, an undersized player (6-1, 281) with an excellent motor.

"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.
