Jets Agree to Terms With Jason Taylor

Free agent linebacker Jason Taylor has agreed to terms with the New York Jets, reports Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald.

According to Salguero, Taylor is scheduled to fly to New York on Wednesday to meet with Jets' officials, and that the one-year deal can be worth up to $4 million dollars via "numerous incentives". ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Taylor's deal is for two years and $13 million dollars, though the real meat of the contract is a one-year deal worth $3.75 million dollars.

The Jets' interest in Taylor does not come as a surprise, given that they totaled just 32 quarterback sacks last season, and the pressure they put on opposing quarterbacks in the post-season were the result of Rex Ryan's imaginative blitz packages. While that's not going away anytime soon, there has been a lack of production from the outside linebacker position, and Taylor, who posted 7 quarterback sacks last season in Miami, is a proven pass-rusher who should thrive in an opportunity to take another stab at a Super Bowl ring.
