THURSDAY, 3:45pm: McIntyre’s one-year deal is worth the minimum, tweets Rich Cimini of ESPN New York.
WEDNESDAY, 3:36pm: The Jets have re-signed outside linebacker Garrett McIntyre, according to Eric Allen of NewYorkJets.com (via Twitter). McIntyre, who has spent the last three seasons with the Jets, had been an unrestricted free agent.
While he hasn’t seen significant playing time in New York over the last three years, McIntyre has been an important depth piece and has started a handful of games in each season. Last season, the 29-year-old played in 271 defensive snaps and recorded a pair of sacks. He was also a contributor on special teams, on both kick and punt coverage.
