FLORHAM PARK, N.J. – The New York Jets have agreed to terms with cornerback Aaron Berry, who was arrested twice this summer and cut by the Detroit Lions.
With All-Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis likely out for the season with a torn ligament in his left knee, the Jets signed Berry on Monday to add much-needed depth to their secondary.
Berry was signed by Detroit as an undrafted free agent out of the University of Pittsburgh. He started three games last season for the Lions and one in 2010.
The Lions terminated Berry's contract in July after his second arrest of the summer in Pennsylvania. Berry, who is from Harrisburg, was also arrested in that area June 23 on suspicion of DUI, failure to stop and render aid from an accident and other counts.
