The New York Jets re-signed veteran defensive lineman Solomon Thomas to a one-year contract. The 27-year-old Thomas had 26 tackles, two tackles for loss, four quarterback hits and a half-sack while working as a backup in New York’s D-line rotation. Thomas is entering his second season with the Jets after signing a one-year deal last offseason. The team didn’t announce terms, but Thomas’ new contract is worth $3.9 million, according to reports. Thomas will help offset the losses of defensive linemen Sheldon Rankins and Nathan Shepherd, who signed elsewhere this week as free agents.
