May, 15, 2014
The New York Jets stayed busy on the negotiating front Thursday. They signed linebacker Jeremiah George, a fifth-round pick from Iowa State, according to ESPN's Field Yates.

George signed a four-year contract for $2.4 million, including a $192,000 signing bonus.

He led the Big 12 last season with 133 tackles, including 12 tackles for loss and 3.5 sacks. George, only 5-foot-11, 231 pounds, is projected as a backup at the two inside linebacker spots. To learn more about him, check out our Rapid Reaction from last Saturday.
