NEW YORK (AP) — Agent Drew Rosenhaus tells The Associated Press that linebacker James Burgess and the New York Jets have agreed to terms on a one-year contract. Burgess started the final 10 games of last season at inside linebacker for the Jets after injuries decimated the position. The 26-year-old linebacker is a favorite of defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, who also coached him in Cleveland. Burgess finished second on the team to only Pro Bowl safety Jamal Adams in total tackles with 90.
