Jets sign Spencer Paysinger

The Jets cut veteran linebacker David Harris early this week and they closed it out by adding a player at the position.

The Jets announced that they have signed linebacker Spencer Paysinger. The terms of the deal were not announced, but it’s unlikely to take a big bite out of the team’s ample cap space.

The move is a homecoming of sorts for Paysinger, who called MetLife Stadium home for the first four years of his career while playing for the Giants. Paysinger made the team as an undrafted free agent in 2011 and won a Super Bowl ring at the end of his rookie season.

Paysinger moved on to the Dolphins in 2015 and played in 29 games for Miami over the last two seasons. He had 83 tackles over that span and was a regular on special teams.

    Special Teams/Depth player. Not a bad signing.

    This. I was a little surprised the Dolphins didn’t resign him. Between defense {333} and special teams {259} he was on the field for almost 600 snaps in 15 games last season. Not really a starter but reliable depth and won’t kill the salary cap. Jets may be going nowhere in 2017 but this is a better signing than some will think.

    Its so obvious that Ty is a closet Jets fan…..First comment on every Jets story. Still cant get over the Jets Championship appearances in 2010 and 11. Rex was better than Bill. LOL

    Very good special team player and backup ILB. Don’t listen to TY, he’s an idiot

    Finally TY can only say LOL! Because his daily diatribe about the Jets being in cap hell has even convinced him that it was all fake news.
