Maher’s agent, Robert Roche, told PFT that Maher has signed a three-year deal with the Jets.
The Jets’ other signees are Louisiana-Lafayette defensive tackle Lanier Coleman, California (Pa.) wide receiver Thomas Mayo and Northern Illinois outside linebacker Sean Progar-Jackson.
While the Jets added Maher, they released first-year placekicker Derek Dimke, whom they signed earlier in the offseason. They also released Eastern Illinois defensive tackle Roosevelt Holliday and Hawaii wide receiver Royce Pollard. Holliday is a rookie, while Pollard is a first-year pro.
