The New York Jets are signing safety Lamarcus Joyner to a one-year deal worth up to $4.5 million, per ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler.

Joyner, who was formerly with the Rams and Raiders, has played both safety and cornerback during his time in the league. This offers some versatility for new head coach Robert Saleh and the defense.

During his seven-year career thus far, he has totaled four interceptions, five sacks, 33 passes defended and 420 combined tackles. He will bring his experience and versatility to a new-look Jets defense this upcoming season.

Joyner now becomes the fourth new addition to the Jets defense during free agency.
