The New York Jets signed wide receiver Garrett Wilson to a four-year, $20.55 million deal. He is the last of the team’s three first-round draft picks to get under contract. Wilson was the No. 10 overall pick last month out of Ohio State. He’s expected to be an immediate contributor as a rookie while giving second-year quarterback Zach Wilson a speedy vertical threat in what should be an improved offense. Cornerback Ahmad “Sauce” Gardner, the No. 4 overall pick, signed his four-year, $38.7 million deal on May 7. Defensive end Jermaine Johnson, the 26th pick, signed a four-year, $13.1 million contract Monday.

The Los Angeles Chargers have signed defensive lineman Morgan Fox. Fox will be entering his seventh year in the league. He spent his first five seasons with the Rams before going to the Carolina Panthers last year. Fox’s most productive season was in 2020, when Chargers coach Brandon Staley was the Rams' defensive coordinator. Fox had a career-high six sacks and nine quarterback hits. He has 103 tackles, 12 sacks, four forced fumbles and four recoveries during his career.

The New York Giants added four defensive players to their roster, including three who have previously worked with members of the coaching staff. The Giants announced the signings of defensive end Jalyn Holmes, safety Henry Black, and cornerbacks Maurice Canady and Khalil Dorsey. Canady and Dorsey previously played for defensive coordinator Wink Martindale in Baltimore. Holmes was with defensive line coach Andre Patterson in Minnesota. In corresponding moves, the Giants terminated the contract of linebacker Trent Harris, and waived quarterback Brian Lewerke and defensive end Raymond Johnson III. Defensive back Jordan Mosley was waived-injured.

The Philadelphia Eagles strengthened their secondary by agreeing on a one-year contract with veteran cornerback James Bradberry. Bradberry, who made the Pro Bowl in 2020, was released by the New York Giants on May 9 for salary cap reasons. He would have been a $21.9 million cap hit. Bradberry’s deal with Philadelphia reportedly is worth $7.5 million, including $7.25 guaranteed. He’ll start opposite four-time Pro Bowl cornerback Darius Slay in defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon’s zone-heavy scheme.  A second-round pick by Carolina in 2016, Bradberry spent four seasons with the Panthers and two with the Giants. He has 15 interceptions in 92 career starts.
