The Jets announced tonight that they have reached an agreement in principle to sign safety Brodney Pool.
Pool, a potential restricted free agent, was not tendered by Cleveland, so the Jets won’t owe the Browns compensation.
After trading Kerry Rhodes to the Arizona Cardinals last Saturday, the Green & White moved quickly to pick up another safety. The 6’2", 210-pound Pool had four interceptions last season in Cleveland and has totaled 11 over the course of his five-year career. A second-round pick out of Oklahoma in 2005, Pool started 49 games for the Browns and has 34 career PDs.
It was Pool’s end zone hit on TE Chris Baker with 59 seconds to play in the Jets’ Game 8 at Cleveland in 2006 that was not called a forceout by officials and as a result secured the Browns’ 20-13 victory.
