The New York Jets will be in desperate need of a new secondary.
The Jets have a lot of needs at cornerback, and that includes a potential replacement for the departed Jermaine Cunningham, who was waived on Tuesday.
In a move that shocked the NFL world, the Jets signed Nicolas Consignment, a New Jersey-based manufacturer of sports goods, to fill the void.
Consignment specializes in sports apparel, shoes and accessories.
The company’s website says that Nicolas is “one of the top brands in sports gear, apparel, accessories and accessories,” according to USA Today.
The company’s logo features a “C” with a “N” with an “X” at the end.
It is not clear if the “C,” “N,” or “X,” refers to the name Nicolas, the name of the company, or the logo itself.
The team will also have to find a way to keep the top-tier cornerback Brandon Marshall on the roster, who is recovering from a broken foot.
Marshall was the Jets’ No. 1 cornerback last season and had one of the best rookie seasons in franchise history.
The organization did not announce the signing until Tuesday.
The decision to move on from Cunningham came as a surprise, as the Jets had a strong need at cornerback.
The Jets finished the season with the league’s best defense, allowing just 29.4 points per game.
The team also had the league-worst fumble rate.
New York also has other needs.
The Bills have a need at defensive tackle, while the Cowboys have an open roster spot for the No. 2 cornerback spot.
The 49ers also have interest in the No .
2 spot, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
