Slauson Signs, Jones Will Show Up

The Jets announced today that they agreed to terms with 6th round pick OG Matt Slauson, the first of the three-man draft class to sign. They also waived CB Tyron Breckenridge.

But the bigger news could come from a tweet (what else?) from Drew Rosenhaus, announcing, "Thomas Jones will attend the Jets OTA next Wednesday." There is no word regarding any developments about his contract, but this is obviously a good sign. This has the potential to get ugly, and both sides would prefer it didn't reach that level.

Leon Washington's agent Alvin Keels also had a sit-down meeting yesterday with team officials regarding his clients contract situation. The Jets seem to be taking proactive measures towards appeasing their players. Now they just need to hammer out deals.
