New York Jets sign pair of rookies

The New York Jets announced the signing of fifth round draft choice G Jonathan Goodwin and rookie free agent WR Kahmal Roy.

Jets General Manager Terry Bradway made the announcement, but did not disclose the terms of the deal.

            Goodwin, a 6-3, 318-pound guard from the University of Michigan was the 154th overall selection in the April NFL Draft. He began his collegiate career at Ohio University in 1997, starting all 11 games as a freshman. After transferring to Michigan in 1998, Goodwin appeared in 29 games as a Wolverine, starting 20 of them. His senior season earned him a first-team All-Big Ten selection, when he started every game at left guard and helped the Wolverine's offensive average 359.3 yards per game. He was also named second team All-America by The Football News.

            Kahmal Roy, a native of Hempstead, NY, was a three-year starter at Hofstra University. The 6-2, 205-pound wide receiver played in 44 games, starting 36 of them. Over his four-year collegiate career, Roy totaled 152 catches for 2,442 yards and 25 touchdowns. Jets fans may be familiar with his 2001 season, when he set a school-record 1,221 receiving yards, breaking Wayne Chrebet's previous mark of 1,200 yards, set in 1994.
