AP source: Jets sign 1st-round pick Kyle Wilson

Story Topics

NEW YORK (AP) - A person familiar with the deal tells The Associated Press that the Jets have signed cornerback Kyle Wilson, the team’s first-round draft pick, to a five-year contract worth $13 million.

The person spoke Saturday night on condition of anonymity because the team had not announced the agreement.

The deal, which includes about $7 million guaranteed, means all four of the Jets’ draft picks are under contract before the team reports for training camp in Cortland on Sunday.

Wilson, considered by many to be the top cornerback in the draft, slipped to the Jets at 29th overall. Coach Rex Ryan immediately said he would have a key role in a defense that ranked No. 1 in the league last season.
