Jets make Special signing

By Marc A. Greenberg

The Jets have signed former Seahawks linebacker and special teams captain Lance Laury.

Laury was a restricted free agent who wasn’t tendered by Seattle, where he spent his first four seasons, collecting 63 special teams tackles. He had 21 tackles and one forced fumble on special teams last season.

With the loss of Wallace Wright, Laury will step in and be the Jets top special teamer.  A minor news story but a big pick up here. Laury will help the Jets with field position.

Laury was signed by Seattle as an undrafted free agent out of South Carolina in 2006.
