Just in time for Thursday night’s Jets-Patriots clash, a player familiar to both teams has returned to the NFL.
Adam Schefter of NFL Network is reporting that free-agent cornerback Ty Law reached agreement on a one-year contract with the Jets today and is expected to play Thursday night against the Patriots.
“This is going to be different playing Thursday night against the Patriots, matching up against my former team and the players I’m used to practicing against,” Law told Schefter. “I know they’re going to throw at me, but I welcome the challenge – bring it. I got the tricks for you.”
Per Schefter, Law will play some cornerback and some safety. Having played for Jets coach Eric Mangini before, it shouldn’t take him long to get acclimated.
Law played for the Patriots from 1995 to 2004. He then spent 2005 with the Jets, and 2006 and 2007 with the Chiefs. Although he started every game from 2005 to 2007, he has been out of the NFL since the end of the 2007 season.
