Jets sign Trevor Reilly, 7th-round pick
By Rich Cimini
The New York Jets began the task of signing their 12 draft picks, announcing a deal Wednesday with seventh-round choice Trevor Reilly, an outside linebacker from Utah.
Reilly signed a four-year contract for about $2.3 million. Under the current collective bargaining agreement, the draft choices are essentially slotted with regard to salary, making rookie deals fairly straight forward.
Reilly is 26 years old, having served a Mormon mission in Sweden. He also has knee issues. He had a knee scope that sidelined him for the all-star games, reportedly on the same right knee that required major surgery in 2012. He recorded 8.5 sacks, 16 tackles-for-loss and 100 tackles last season.
