Jets Sign Rodrique Wright

According to Adam Caplan's Scout.com transaction wire blog,

New York Jets

Monday: Signed DE Rodrique Wright.

Comments: Wright was out of the NFL last season.

Wright a former Dolphin and Texas Longhorn won Big 12 Freshman of the Year in 2002, where he posted impressive numbers including 13 TFL and 4.5 sacks. He followed that with a 80 tackle, 7.5 sack Sophmore year. He completed his Texas career as a Lombardi trophy finalist and Rose Bowl Champion. Although a highly regarded prospect with a good upside, Wright dropped to the 7th round as it was revealed that he had a torn rotator cuff, spending the entire 2006 season on the injury list.  In his one full season with the Dolphins, he recorded 37 tackles, 1.5 sacks as well as recovering a fumble.

He has excellent size as a 3-4 DE at 6-5 and 300lb's, and he can be filed under camp fodder or interesting project, it depends how you want to look at it. Never hurts to add depth though, especially to a position of need, never know when you are going to strike gold. Solid signing, let's see what he has.
