New York Jets Strategy and Personnel 2009-05-08


New York Jets Strategy and Personnel 2009-05-08
The Jets improved their defense in the free-agent signing period, bringing in ILB Bart Scott, a rising star, from Baltimore. He replaces Eric Barton, a defensive stalwart since coming over as a free agent before the 2004 season. Scott is three years younger than Barton.


Also added were free agent S Jim Leonhard, also from Baltimore, and CB Lito Sheppard, acquired in a trade from Philadelphia. Sheppard had fallen out of favor with the Eagles and was replaced in the starting lineup by Asante Samuel last season, but the Jets believe he can recapture his two-time Pro Bowl form.
