Continuing to bolster their roster, the Jets have reportedly come to terms on a 1-year deal with former Las Vegas Raiders defensive back Lamarcus Joyner worth $4.5 million.

A nickel corner with the Raiders, Rapoport says Joyner will play safety for Robert Saleh’s defense, which is where he wanted to play with Las Vegas.  In seven pro seasons, Joyner has appeared in 95 games (58 starts) racking up 420 tackles (21 for loss), 33 passes defended, 5 sacks and 4 interceptions.  With Marcus Maye getting hit with the franchise tag, Joyer will team with Maye and Ashtyn Davis on the back end of the Jets defense.

Joyner is now the seventh player signed by Joe Douglas this week, joining LB Jarrad Davis, WR Corey Davis, DE Carl Lawson, DB Justin Hardee, WR Keelan Cole and offensive lineman Dan Feeney.  The Jets have also retained the services of a few of their own players in running back Josh Adams and wide receivers Jeff and Vyncint Smith.
