The Jets have signed CB Pierre Desir.
Desir was released by the Colts March 21 after he started in 11 of the 12 games he appeared in this past season, totaling 50 tackles, 11 pass defenses and 3 interceptions. The seventh-year pro was originally drafted by the Browns in the fourth round out of Lindenwood in 2014 and spent two seasons in Cleveland before he was waived. The Chargers claimed Desir in 2016 but was released in October and then signed to the Seahawks practice squad. The 6'1", 192-pounder was a final cut that year and the Colts claimed him. The 29-year-old has appeared in 61 games (36 starts) in his career, tallying 210 tackles, 34 PD, 5 INT and 2 forced fumbles.
Desir, a Lindenwood product, reunites with Jets assistant GM Rex Hogan, who served as Indy's VP of player personnel from 2017-18, and his former teammate CB Nate Hairston.
