Jets Free Agency 2012: New York Signs Bryan Thomas, Is Interested In QB Chad Henne

The New York Jets announced on Tuesday that they have come to an agreement on a new contract with longtime Jet linebacker Bryan Thomas (via Jets).

The Jets drafted Thomas out of UAB in 2002 in the first round of the NFL Draft and he has been with the team ever since. Thomas has made 418 tackles (300 solo) and 31 sacks since his rookie season. Last season, Thomas made three starts and 14 tackles (10 solo) before tearing his Achilles tendon and missing the rest of the season.

The Jets have also reached out to quarterback Chad Henne. New York has not scheduled a visit with the former Dolphins quarterback who has visited the Jaguars (via ESPN New York). The chances of the Jets landing Henne as a backup to Mark Sanchez seem slim if Henne is indeed looking for a team where he can compete for the starting job and not be the No. 2. Henne started 31 games for the Dolphins over the past three seasons. However, Henne is familiar with Jets offensive coordinator Tony Sparano's offense as Henne played under Sparano in Miami.
