Jets re-sign LB Garrett McIntyre
By Rich Cimini
The New York Jets added a veteran to one of their thinnest positions, re-signing outside linebacker Garrett McIntyre.
McIntyre was a non-tendered restricted free agent. In other words, the Jets declined last month to extend the necessary tender ($1.4 million) to maintain their rights to McIntyre. After shopping around for a few weeks, McIntyre decided to return, undoubtedly for less than $1.4 million. Terms of the deal weren't immediately available.
McIntyre played in 13 games last season, missing three with a knee injury. He played in 256 defensive snaps (23 percent), mostly as a fill-in for Calvin Pace. He finished with 19 total tackles, including two sacks.
