The New York Jets were anxiously awaiting an answer from safety Reggie Nelson. The Jets had him in for a visit and made a contract offer. Looks like the Jets just got their answer.
As per Adam Schefter on Twitter:
Big pickup: Bengals reached agreement with safety Reggie Nelson. Jets now will need to look elsewhere.

The Jets need upgrades at the safety position and their search will continue. When you make no impact moves in the first week of free agency and are spurned by your primary target to date, it does cause concern.
Jets fans are not happy with the offseason so far, and they are sounding off in our New York Jets forum.
