Jets Sign Darron Lee

The Jets have signed first round pick Darron Lee a day before the first practice of training camp.

This means the Jets essentially gave Lee what he wanted.

I am glad to see the Jets come around. This standoff wasn't about money. The terms of the deal were largely set by the rookie wage scale. This was about whether a small fraction of this contract was guaranteed. There are times in contract negotiations to hold firm. This was not one of them. This was a minor point in the contract, hardly worth having the first round pick start camp late.
