Jets add Another Free Agent Linebacker in Hewitt

The New York Jets have had their share of struggles on special teams in recent years and it appears they’re serious about fixing the problem this off-season.

Gang Green signed yet another free agent linebacker with a significant amount of special teams experience by inking former Miami Dolphin Neville Hewitt.

In addition to playing on specials, Hewitt offers versatility with the ability to play both inside or outside linebacker if needed.  Even with a new deal in hand, Hewitt is far from a lock to make the Jets roster as they’ve also added linebackers Brandon Copeland and Kevin Pierre-Louis in recent weeks, both of whom will compete with a suddenly crowded linebacker group.
