New York Jets Lock Down David Harris

The New York Jets have signed inside linebacker David Harris to a 4 year, 36 million dollar contract with 29.5 million in guaranteed money, the most ever to an inside linebacker on a 4 year deal in NFL history. The move will free up about 6 million more in cap space for the Jets right now, as they are benefited by no longer having him under the franchise tag. It will interesting to see if Mike Tannenbaum looks to make a corresponding move in free agency or via trade in the coming days.

Say what you want about the Jets big spending, but they are built to win both now and for the future. Nick Mangold, David Harris, D'Brickashaw Ferguson, Darrelle Revis, Antonio Cromartie, Mark Sanchez, and Santonio Holmes are now all locked down long term. 

Harris was the Jets second round pick in 2007, after they traded up in the round to select him. He has led the team in tackles the past two seasons.

New York Jets Training Camp: Expect David Harris Contract Soon

Multiple sources around the New York Jets organization have reported a long term deal with inside linebacker David Harris should be completed in the next couple of days. Harris also sounded confident today when speaking with the media, saying he believed the process was near complete. He is currently the team's franchise player but we have heard all along they planned on locking him down for the long term as the last piece of their "core four" along with Nick Mangold, D'Brickashaw Ferguson, and Darrelle Revis. Harris forms one of the league's better inside linebacker duos with Bart Scott.

Signing Harris to a long term deal will also provide immediate cap relief to the Jets for this year, who could look to improve their depth at linebacker, offensive line, safety, or wide receiver. There is also still a chance they could look to bring veteran defensive end Shaun Ellis or Trevor Pryce.
