From the NY Post:
Maulet will return on a one-year deal, his agency tweeted. The 26-year-old played in 12 games and made six starts for the Jets last season at an injury-ravaged position. Maulet played pretty well. He had one interception and two passes defended against. He was a strong tackler and seemed to fit Gregg Williams’ system.
Maulet was scheduled to be a restricted free agent, but the Jets did not tender him, making him an unrestricted free agent.
Hewitt played well for the Jets last year, filling in for C.J. Mosley and Avery Williamson. Started 12 games. Had a strong finish to the ’18 season, too. Good depth signing for them at ILB. #nyj
