It’s time for the Jets to break glass in event of emergency. And that has brought them to cornerback Aaron Berry.
Berry, a former Lion whose very bad year began with playing the “broke and miserable” card on Twitter against fans criticizing him and the rest of his team for getting toasted in New Orleans and continued with a pair of offseason arrests and a three-game suspension, has agreed to terms with the Jets, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. He’ll help replace cornerback Darrelle Revis, who is done for the year.
The willingness to embrace a so-so player with a rap sheet that includes allegedly pulling a gun on three guys the same day a madman shot up a theater in Colorado shows how desperate the Jets are.
And it makes us wonder in what other ways the desperation will manifest itself, especially if receiver Santonio Holmes is lost for an extended period of time.
In other words, Terrell Owens possibly will be getting a job.
