    Brian Poole who was released by the Falcons lands a 1-year deal w the Jets. Going from $600K/yr on his rookie deal to $3.5M for a 1-year deal w the Jets.

    Not bad for an undrafted free agent. Always like to see our guys do well.

    Was he a cap casualty for the Falcons? I don’t keep up with NFL as much as I use too. It’s become like the Kardashians

    He may have. I know the falcons restructured Ryan’s contract to make room under the salary cap as well.

    I may become a Jets fan. Add Polite, Chauncey, or Taylor and I’m in.

    Great to see for Poole.

    Poole was picked on in coverage for Falcons last year. Opponents completed a high percentage of passes against him. Off season

    To be fair, opponents had their choice of DBs to pick on when playing the Falcons. Robert Alford was the most overpaid and overrated and was let go and still have Truffaut who won’t tackle or play tight defense.

    Also, don’t forget the Falcons lost Keanu Neal and the other starting safety early in the year.

    Oh and no pass rush.

    Poole had a good year the year before when there was a pass rush.

    His rookie contract expired and the team declined to pick up his option. I think everyone liked him but they saw his position (#4/5 DB) as a minimal salary position.

    Hate to see him leave the Falcons.

    I saw him once in the Target in Flowery Branch, GA. He came up and said "Go Gators!", when he saw my Gator shirt.

    It's hard to hate the Jets with all of these Gators they keep drafting... Polite, Maye, now they sign Poole...

    That said, Go Dolphins! ;)
