Report: Redskins strong contenders for LB C.J. Mosley

The Jets sought a linebacker to potentially replace Darron Lee in Gregg Williams' defense and settled on Mosley as their guy.

The Ravens wanted to re-sign Mosley, but the Jets outbid them.

The Jets aren't messing around in free agency, deciding to use their wealth of cap space to add young defenders to a reasonably promising defense. But first-year general manager Eric DeCosta couldn't come up with enough money to keep the five-year veteran.

The team also will re-sign backup cornerback Darryl Roberts, according to one of the people - both of whom spoke to The Associated Press on Tuesday on condition of anonymity because teams can't announce deals until the NFL's new year begins Wednesday afternoon.

The Jets reportedly also agreed to a deal with former Redskins receiver Jamison Crowder.

According to The Athletic's Connor Hughes, it's a five-year, $85 million deal with $51 million guaranteed. But don't mistake this for a quick spending spree giving the Jets a one-to-two-year window.

Since finishing 10-6 in 2015, the Jets are a combined 14-34 these past three seasons and have lost at least 11 games in each of those campaigns. He spent the last five years with Chicago.
