Jets Sign Kevin Vickerson

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The Jets have signed veteran defensive lineman Kevin Vickerson.

Vickerson has been in the NFL since 2007. He has played stints with the Titans, Broncos, and Chiefs.

He does not profile as a starter with Muhammad Wilkerson and Sheldon Richardson on the roster and Damon Harrison likely to return. He could help fill the absence of Kenrick Ellis as a rotational player who comes in to give the starters a rest.

Vickerson has a reputation for being a solid run defender.
