Quick deal? Check. One-year? Check. Range of $7 million? Check.

Former Lions linebacker Jarrad Davis, a first-round pick in 2017, reportedly will sign a one-year deal with the Jets, according to NFL Media. The deal will have a value of $7 million.

That meshes with the expectations for Davis. Though not a big deal, it was a quick deal. In the range of $7 million. It gives Davis a chance to show what he can do in a system that presumably will make better use of his skills.

New Jets coach Robert Saleh, a Michigan native, didn’t get the Lions head-coaching job. He’ll now lure the former Lions player to New York.

Here’s an intriguing connection. Adam Gase used to coach the Jets. In 2017, he coached the Dolphins. The Dolphins wanted to drafted Davis in 2017, but the Lions beat them to the punch.

  1. If the Jets or some other middling team was pursuing me, I might wait a bit to see if a better team is interested.

  2. Lions fan here. NY overpaid. Davis has mad athleticism, but is only functional as a blitzer. Has no gap awareness in the run game and other QBs light up when they see him in coverage. It wasn’t just Patricia’s fault either, Davis struggled with these issue his first year under Austin as well.

  3. Let’s send a late round pick to the jests for Mosley best linebacker in the draft IMO.
