The Jets have agreed to terms with Texans edge rusher Jacob Martin per Ian Rapport.
Martin was a sixth round pick of the Seattle Seahawks in 2018. A year later he was sent to Houston as part of the Jadeveon Clowney trade.
As our old buddy Michael Nania notes over at Jets X-Factor, Martin has a solid history as a pass rusher.
For his career, Martin has created pressure 106 times on 943 pass-rush snaps. That’s a pressure rate of 11.2%, which is above the 2021 league average for edge rushers.
I would guess that Martin will fill the role the team intended for Vinny Curry last year getting on the field and getting after the quarterback on passing downs. Martin also has a fair share of experience on special teams coverage units so it wouldn’t be shocking to see Brant Boyer make some use of him in the game’s third phase.
