The New York Jets on Friday signed safety Jamal Adams of LSU, the sixth overall pick in the draft.
Adams gets a four-year deal worth about $22 million. As with all first-round contracts under the current labor agreement, the Jets have a fifth-year option.
All nine of the Jets' selections in April's draft have signed.
A versatile defender, Adams had one interception and four passes defensed as a junior last season, committing zero penalties as he rarely was thrown at. For his three seasons at the school, he played in 37 games (26 starts) with five interceptions, 14 passes defensed, two forced fumbles and one recovery, 209 tackles and 17 1-2 tackles for loss.
Adams is expected to be a starter this season for the rebuilding Jets.
