The Jets are expected to sign Mississippi State safety Brandon Bryant, reports Tom Pelissero of NFL.com.
Bryant, 22, worked out for about half the teams in the league in June, but wasn't selected during Wednesday's Supplemental Draft.
Off the field, Bryant was charged with a DUI in January of 2017. But his potential was too much for the Jets to pass up.
"He's a fantastic athlete, as shown by his Pro Day testing, and with added time for preparation might have been even more impressive," wrote Eric Galko of the Sporting News. "His mental make-up and attitude remain concerns for NFL teams, perhaps more so than any other player in the Supplemental Draft, but his athleticism is hard to deny."
