Marqui Christian Joins New York Jets

The Jets have added depth to their secondary, signing former Rams safety Marqui Christian to a one-year deal. The contract is worth $1.25 million and can reach $2 million with bonuses, according to Brian Costello.

Marqui Christian is a free safety and was drafted by the Cardinals out of Midwestern State in the fifth round in 2016. Having never made the Arizona roster, he was waived and picked up by Los Angeles. He has started just one game in his whole career. However, he has stuck around long enough to play four seasons in the NFL. In addition, he has participated in 16 games in each of the past two years.

If he makes the Jets roster, Christian will likely play behind starters Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye as a second-choice safety on the depth chart.

New York made another move on Saturday, cutting cornerback Darryl Roberts before $2 million of his salary became guaranteed. Instead, the Jets now save $6 million. They are now approximately $40 million under the salary cap threshold of $198 million.

Earlier today, New York also added a backup center to Connor McGovern, per reports. It’s none other than former Colts player Josh Andrews, who took part in career-high 6 percent of offensive snaps.
