Adam Schefter of NFL.com reports that the New York Jets have signed free agent CB Ty Law for the remainder of the season.
Free-agent cornerback Ty Law reached agreement Monday with the Jets on a one-year deal, and is expected to play Thursday night against the Patriots.
“This is going to be different playing Thursday night against the Patriots, matching up against my former team and the players I’m used to practicing against,” Law said as he was packing in Boston to drive to New York only to return to Boston again on Wednesday.
“I know they’re going to throw at me, but I welcome the challenge — bring it. I got the tricks for you.”
Could this just be Mangini playing mind games with Bill? And did they really have to do this on Troy Brown night at Foxboro? Hopefully Mangini has a little more class than to try to take any attention away from this special night for the Patriots and their organization by recognizing a team legend.
Ty Law, although almost always in good shape, can’t possibly be close to game shape and shouldn’t play much or a role in Thursday night’s game. As if a Jets/Pats game couldn’t be any more exciting, we get this little bit of news just 72 hours before kickoff.
Is it Thursday yet?!?!?!
