The New York Jets have signed 25 year old offensive lineman Jonotthan Harrison to a one year contract. Harrison will turn 26 years old just prior to the start of the 2017 NFL regular season. Terms of the deal were not immediately available.

Harrison is a 6' 4", 305 pound offensive lineman out of the University of Florida. Harrison went undrafted in 2014 and was signed as a free agent after the draft by the Indianapolis Colts. Harrison started 23 games for the Colts from 2014 through 2016 and has played every position along the offensive line, as well as an occasional play as a jumbo tight end. Harrison became a restricted free agent following the 2016 season, but the Colts declined to make him a qualifying tender, thus Harrison became an unrestricted free agent.

Harrison's best fit is along the interior of the offensive line. He is expected to compete with Wesley Johnson for the starting center position on the Jets offensive line in 2017.  Harrison is known as an athletic lineman. He is a decent power run blocker who struggles a bit in pass protection. In 2016 Harrison appeared in 13 games, with four starts at left guard.  He was rated the #71 guard out of 72 qualifying players at the position last year by Pro Football Focus.
