Jets Add Another Raven in Landing DE Marques Douglas

Marques Douglas
Another former Raven is joining the Jets, as the team has come to terms with Ravens unrestricted free agent DE Marques Douglas. The Newark Star-Ledger broke the story, and said that details of the deal are not yet available. The ninth-year pro is the third ex-Raven to join the Jets, as the team also has LB Bart Scott and safety Jim Leonhard.

Douglas is 6-2, 292, and will give the Jets some depth along their D-line. Last year as the Ravens made it all the way to the AFC Title game vs the Steelers, Douglas had 36 tackles in 16 games in a reserve role. Douglas has been around, as he’s also played for the Bucs, Saints and 49’ers. He will likely be a reserve for the Jets, though before last year he had been a starter for five straight seasons.

The Jets are still interested in another Raven free agent, as the team still is looking to sign CB Corey Ivy.
