The New York Jets agree a deal to sign former Miami Dolphins cornerback Dimitri Patterson.

The New York Jets have agreed a deal to sign former Miami Dolphins cornerback Dimitri Patterson, the team announced today.

Patterson was released by the Dolphins last month due to his high wage bill, which would have counted $5.4m (£3.2m) against the team's salary cap.

The Jets will be Patterson's seventh NFL team going into his 10th season in the league, and the journeyman is expected to compete for a starting job with the likes of Dee Milliner, Darrin Walls and Kyle Wilson.


Patterson started four games for the Dolphins last season and has nine career interceptions in his 78 appearances overall.
