The Latest on NFL free agency Thursday from zhangzk's blog

A person with direct knowledge of the contract tells The Associated Press that the New York Jets and cornerback Brian Poole have agreed on a one-year deal worth $3.5 million.The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the team had not announced the deal.Poole played his first three NFL seasons with Atlanta Drew Lock Jersey , but the Falcons did not tender him a contract as a restricted free agent — making him an unrestricted free agent and free to sign elsewhere.The 26-year-old Poole has four career interceptions and five sacks. Signed in 2016 as an undrafted free agent out of Florida, he had his best season last year when he set career highs with three interceptions, three sacks and 74 total tackles.Poole will likely replace Buster Skrine as the Jets’ nickel corner. Skrine signed with Chicago as a free agent after four seasons in New York.— Reporting by Dennis Waszak Jr. in New York. Unlike the days of yore when NFLers would fight and claw until their last aging breath to compete on the field , today, more and more players are choosing the route of early retirement from the league.New studies about the long-term effects of repetitive head trauma (CTE) in professional athletes has been one of the main driving forces behind footballers giving up the game, but that's not their only reasoning behind retirement. Many players choose to give up million-dollar contracts to simply chase their dream in another field , or simply because their heart is no longer in the game.Whatever the case, the NFL is in a "retirement crisis." The early exits of stars have been putting the front office's disaster meter at code red. But, instead of looking at from the big wig's perspective Zach Brown Jersey , we should be viewing these issues through the lens of the players.That's why today at TheSportster, we'll dive into some of the early (and mostly healthy) retirements from the league, and give you a little insight behind each one. Let's figure out why these guys abandoned their pricey paychecks by examining 15 NFL players who gave up the game for good Devin Bush Jersey , and check-in on what they are up to now.
