According to Tom Pelissero from NFL Network, Avery Williamson has agreed to a restructured contract. Recent reports have Neville Hewitt and Blake Cashman getting the 1st team reps. This new deal provides guaranteed money for Williamson as he works back up to game speed.
#Jets LB Avery Williamson recently agreed to a restructured contract worth $3.5M for this season, including $1M guaranteed, per source. Max $5M with incentives. The move saves New York $3M in cash and $3.75M in cap space.

Some other notes:
- Logan Ryan who was rumored to be headed to the Jets before camp has signed with the NY Giants.
- Running back Pete Guerriero is reportedly headed back to the team. He was let go when the Jets acquired Kalen Ballage. Since then Ballage failed his physical and La’Mical Perine suffered an ankle injury during the Jets Green & White scrimmage. The team is suddenly very thin at running back.
- Bilal Powell says he is fully healthy and ready for a call.

And by a source close to Bilal I mean Bilal himself.
