The Jets have had to face Dolphins edge rusher Cameron Wake many times since Wake left the CFL for Miami in 2009 and started racking up the 70 career sacks he’s recorded over the last seven seasons.
Now the Jets hope that they can get some of the same success from a Canadian import of their own. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Jets have signed edge rusher Freddie Bishop to a two-year contract.
Bishop, who visited with several teams, is coming off an 11 sack season for the Calgary Stampeders. He had three sacks in his first year with the team and spent some time in 2013 with the Lions after wrapping up his college career at Western Michigan.
Schefter reports that the Jets also signed kicker Kyle Brindza to a future contract. Brindza opened the year as the Buccaneers’ kicker, but lost the job after missing six field goals and two extra points in the first four weeks of the year.
