    Post New Story: UDFA Rontez Miles is Eager to Contribue

    Florham Park, NJ -*Every year undrafted free-agents face an uphill battle. 32 teams passed on them through seven different rounds, they get only a few months, at most, to learn the play-book and make enough of an impression on the coaching staff to prove they are deserving of one of those last precious roster spots.

    Im surprised he wasn't drafted - he was ranked in the top 200 college players and the 16th best safety. Jets might have a steal here.

    if the guy makes the team and is even an average nfl safety the jets stole one there. just wish they could hit paydirt on a wr or a te this year to make geno's transition easier.
