Cardinals' Kevin Minter wants to sign with Jets

Arizona Cardinals impending free agent inside linebacker Kevin Minter wants to sign with the New York Jets.

What It Means:

Minter has strong ties to Jets head coach Todd Bowles, who coached him the first two years of his career. The Jets don't have a huge need at inside linebacker, but Minter could be an option if Darron Lee moves outside.

The Jets' defense ranked 10th-worst in opponent-adjusted Defensive Net Expected Points (NEP) per play this year, but Minter wouldn't do much to bump up an already fourth-best ranking in opponent-adjusted Defensive Rushing NEP per play.
