ILB/Special Teamer Grew Up in Miami, Played Past 4 Seasons with the Green Bay Packers

The Jets have signed unrestricted free agent linebacker Jamari Lattimore.

Lattimore (6'2", 232) entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with Green Bay out Middle Tennessee State after the 2011 draft and has been an inside 'backer and special teams player with the Packers for the past four seasons.

Last season he posted career highs with five starts and 35 total tackles. His first start came against the Jets in Game 2 at LLB, when he recorded eight tackles. He started the next four games at MLB and came up with his first career interception against Minnesota.

Lattimore, who grew up in Miami, FL, has played in 49 games as a Packer (nine starts, all the past two seasons) plus four more postseason games. He's amassed two sacks, an interception and 66 tackles on defense — including a 12-tackle game against Cleveland in 2013 — and 19 kick-coverage tackles.
