Jets sign Jeremiah George

The Jets left the draft with 12 new members of the team, leaving them with more work than most teams when it comes to getting their rookies under contract.

They may pale in comparison to the Bears, who are already done signing their picks, but they are making good progress all the same. Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun reports that linebacker Jeremiah George has agreed to his four-year rookie contract.

George led the Big 12 in tackles in his final season at Iowa State, which got him drafted in the fifth round by the Jets even though he’s a bit undersized for an NFL inside linebacker at 5-11 and 234 pounds. His speed and energy could prove especially useful on special teams while he tries to carve out a spot on defense behind projected starters David Harris and DeMario Davis.

The Jets signed linebacker Trevor Reilly and offensive lineman Dakota Dozier on Wednesday to get cracking on the dozen signings they had to make after wrapping up the draft.

    Jets now have some young pieces with loads of potential. 3 names to remember; WR Shaq Evans, CB Lowell Rose, and especially S Rontez Miles

    I never heard of Shaq Evans before the draft but I just watched his highlights.
    Dude looks like a player. His highlights look like like 2nd round potential – jets may have something on their hands there.
