Free agent safety Brodney Pool is about to become a Jet.
Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that the New York Jets reached an agreement on a one-year, $1.3 million deal with Pool on Thursday night.
Pool has played his entire five-year career in Cleveland but wasn’t tendered by the Browns. That means the Jets won’t have to send any compensation to the Browns, even though Pool was technically a restricted free agent.
Pool has suffered multiple concussions, and after his latest concussion cut short his 2009 season, there was talk that it could end his career. But Pool was given a clean bill of health in February.
In addition to the Jets, teams that showed an interest in Pool included the Rams and Buccaneers.
