Ty Law officially a Jet

It's official. Ty Law is a Jet. While terms weren't announced, an NFL source says the cornerback's deal could be worth as much $25 million over the first three years, if Law makes all the incentives in the contract.

The deal is structured in a way where it could be as long seven years, and as short as three.

"If he turns into the Ty Law of old, he has the opportunity to make a lot more money," said Law's agent Carl Poston. "The real spirit of the contract is that if he can stay injury-free, he will get market value."

Law says the broken foot that ended his 2004 season, is now healthy, and he's looking to show people he's lost nothing after nine years in the league.

"I'm going to prove to all the doubters that I'm the best cornerback in football," said Law.

Law coming to the Jets obviously is of great concern to New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick. He attempted at the 11th hour to convince Law to return to the Patriots, a team he won three Super Bowls with.

"I was contacted by Coach Belichick," said Law. "It was a good discussion, but it was best we go our separate ways."

And if his foot injury is in the past, the Jets will be lucky he came their way.

"He is going to take them over the top," said Poston.
