The Jets announced today that MLB Sam Cowart has been traded to the Minnesota Vikings. Although the compensation was not announced, Jets Insider.com has learned that the team will get a seventh round pick in this year’s draft for the LB.

Cowart, 30, reunites with former Jets and Bills defensive coordinator Ted Cottrell who now heads the Vikings D. Cottrell originally drafted Cowart while with the Bills.

The seven year veteran was signed as an unrestricted free agent by the Jets in 2002 and after playing the weakside position his first two seasons, he was moved to his natural middle LB last season. Cowart began the season as the starter then suffered a sprained knee in game two which sidelined for six games. During that time, rookie Jonathan Vilma took over and went on to become the NFL’s defensive rookie of the year. Although Cowart came back in November, he never regained his starting role. The obvious emergence of Vilma spelled the end to Cowart’s career in NY.
