Jets may give ex-Lion Aaron Berry a second chance

Aaron Berry was arrested twice during the offseason, and the second arrest cost him his job as a starting cornerback for the Lions. But another team in need of a cornerback may be ready to give Berry another chance.

The Jets, who just lost Darrelle Revis to a torn ACL, brought Berry in for a visit on Friday, according to Mike Garafolo of USA Today.

Berry is obviously no replacement for Revis, but no one is a replacement for Revis. And considering that the Jets are desperate enough at cornerback that they’re moving running back Joe McKnight there even though he hasn’t played defense since high school, bringing in a player who would be starting for the Lions right now if it weren’t for his off-field problems could make sense.

Berry’s two off-field incidents got him suspended three games by the league, but players are allowed to serve suspensions while they’re out of the league, so Berry’s suspension ended with the conclusion of Week Three. He is now eligible to play if anyone wants him, and the Jets may want him.
