Jets sign Tom Compton to help fill out offensive line

The Jets added offensive lineman Tom Compton on Monday, adding another big man to keep watch over Sam Darnold. "The 6'6", 315-pounder was originally the Redskins sixth-round pick in 2012 (No. 193 overall) and he spent four years in Washington before spending one season with the Falcons, Bears and Vikings from 2016-18.

With Minnesota last season, Compton was supposed to just be a utility blocker for the team to have when their starters would miss time due to injury.

He got off to a decent start last season. But after Nick Easton suffered a season-ending neck injury during the preseason, the Vikings turned to Compton to be their starting left guard for 2018.

However, Parker added that "while the language on criminal liability is positive, it will be hard to enforce". Chinese Premier Li Keqiang says his government is committed to protecting intellectual properties.

Although it's unclear if Compton could also play fullback like Dozier. Compton has played in 85 games over his career (29 starts) and in addition to left guard, he's lined up at right guard and right tackle.

At the end of the day, this isn't necessarily a flashy signing and there will be some who point to Compton's struggles in Minnesota previous year as a reason that this move doesn't make sense. Compton will provide depth, though.

Not a bad signing at all at this stage of free agency.
