Jets sign first FA Coleman, re-sign Hamilton

By Jets Staff
March 6th, 2007
After the big trade yesterday for Bears RB Thomas Jones, the team added some talent on defense by signing FA DE Kenyon Coleman, formerly of the Cowboys.

Colman, a five year vet, has played the last four seasons with Dallas after playing one season with Oakland where he was originally a fifth round draft pick from UCLA. Last season he had 31 tackles and 4 sacks for the Cowboys. Although he’s listed as a DE, he will likely play the hybrid DE/LB position similar to what Bryan Thomas did last week.

In a released statement from the team, GM Mike Tannenbaum commented on the signing.

“Kenyon Coleman is a physical defensive lineman and we like his size and strength up front,” Tannenbaum said. “He has experience playing the 3-4 defense and we’re looking forward to having him be a part of our organization.”

The team also announced that they re-signed DT Bobby Hamilton, who was released last week in a salary cap move to a more cap friendly deal. Details were not disclosed.

Newly acquired RB Thomas Jones arrived in Hempstead today, passed a physical and signed a new contract, reportedly worth $20MM over four years with $13MM guaranteed. He will jump right in to the Jets off season conditioning program.
