Jets re-sign Neville Hewitt to one-year deal

The Jets brought back another piece of their defense on Friday, agreeing to a deal with free agent linebacker Neville Hewitt.

It is a one-year, $2 million contract, according to his agent Drew Rosenhaus.

Hewitt started 12 games for the Jets last year at inside linebacker after injuries to starters C.J. Mosley and Avery Williamson. Hewitt played well for defensive coordinator Gregg Williams. He had 75 tackles, three sacks and two interceptions.

Hewitt is the third free agent from the defense that general manager Joe Douglas has brought back this week. He also re-signed cornerbacks Brian Poole and Arthur Maulet.
