According to Albert Breer of the Sporting News, the Jets have signed Seattle Seahawks free agent defensive tackle Howard Green to a one-year deal. Terms of the agreement have not been disclosed, according to the report.
Green came to Seattle during training camp without a definite role and proved a serviceable backup for the Seahawks during the 2008 season.
Green has some familiarity with new Jets head coach Rex Ryan, having played for him in Baltimore in 2002 when Ryan served as the defensive line coach.
Never miss a local story.
With Green gone, the Seahawks will need to bring in a couple players either through free agency or the draft to solidify Seattle's depth at defensive tackle.
