Jets scramble to fill void, sign CB
March 6th, 2004
The Jets wasted no time after Antoine Winfield left them at the altar yesterday by today signing Cardinals FA CB David Barrett. The Jets wasted no time after Antoine Winfield left them at the altar yesterday by today signing Cardinals FA CB David Barrett.

The 26 year old Barrett (5’10 – 200) is regarded as one of the more underrated cornerbacks in this year’s free agent class. He was originally a 4th round pick of Arizona in 2000 and last season played in all 16 games while recording 80 tackles and 1 INT. His scouting report lists him as an excellent tackler with formidable speed. For sure, Barrett is an upgrade over Aaron Beasley who he will be replacing.

According to Newsday, Barrett’s deal is worth $21MM over six years and included a $4.5MM signing bonus.

Look for the Jets next move to be signing a LB. Yesterday, Raiders FA LB Eric Barton visited Hofstra and the team is also reportedly interested in Broncos FA LB Ian Gold.
