NY Jets Re-Sign Leger Douzable

New, comments

Add another piece to a strong defensive line.

Ed Mulholland-USA TODAY Sports

The NY Jets have brought defensive lineman Leger Douzable back on a one year deal.  The terms of the deal have not been disclosed.  Douzable is a  6' 4", 305 pound defensive lineman who will turn 29 years old in May.    He went undrafted out of Central Florida in 2007 and got his first NFL action with the St. Louis Rams in 2009.  Douzable had NFL stints with the Rams, the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Tennessee Titans before being signed by the Jets as a free agent in 2013.  Over the last two years Douzable has proven to be a valuable depth piece on the Jets defensive line.  He has not started any games for the Jets but has seen consistent action and has performed well in the playing time he has received.  Douzable has amassed 19 tackles, 26 assists and four sacks in his time with the Jets.  In his career Douzable has 57 tackles, 45 assists, five sacks and one pass defended in 75 games, including seven starts.

Douzable adds another quality depth piece to an already strong defensive line, joining 2015 free agent signings Kevin Vickerson and Stephen Bowen as backups to the Sons of Anarchy starters.
