Jets sign sixth-round pick

The New York Jets have signed rookie safety Josh Bush to a four-year contract. Bush was a sixth-round pick of the Jets in this year's NFL draft.

Bush is expected to add depth at safety, which is thin and has questions with starters Eric Smith and LaRon Landry. Smith was inconsistent last year and Landry, a free-agent signing, has been injury-prone.

Bush is the second Jets player under contract from this year's draft class. Last week New York signed wide receiver Stephen Hill, the team's second-round pick.
