FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) -- The New York Jets have re-signed versatile backup linebacker Garrett McIntyre.
McIntyre became a free agent last month after he was not tendered an offer by the Jets as a restricted free agent. The team announced the deal Wednesday, but did not release terms.
McIntyre was signed by the Jets in 2011 after stints in the Arena Football League and Canadian Football League. He has 5 1/2 sacks, 72 tackles and two forced fumbles in 42 games, including 10 starts, with New York.
An undrafted free agent out of Fresno State in 2006, the 29-year-old McIntyre has also spent time with Seattle, Arizona and Tennessee.
