Initial Reaction: New York Jets Sign CB Brian Poole

After making the big moves earlier on in the week, the Jets begin to fill out the roster in the latter waves of free agency starting with CB Brian Poole. Poole will take over for Buster Skrine as the primary slot corner.

This appears to be an almost lateral move from Buster Skrine. I asked Charles McDonald earlier this week what his assessment of Poole was and he had this to say:

He seems to be one of the guys Gregg Williams prefers in his defense, in regards to a blitzing slot corner. He won’t be able to cover the faster slot receivers but will be serviceable in the slot. Skrine was a fine player but for the money he was making, you couldn’t justify him. Poole comes on a cheaper deal and can provide you with a similar skillset. I would still expect them to continue to make deals to sure up the secondary depth considering they’re main guys right now are Trumaine Johnson, Darryl Roberts and now Poole.

Another interesting stat, courtesy of Michael Nania: Poole averages almost two less penalties per 16 games than Buster Skrine. Hopefully he shows up for the two Dolphins games a year unlike Skrine.
