Aaron Berry signs two-year New York Jets contract

The New York Jets have signed cornerback Aaron Berry to a two-year deal, Berry's agent, Audie Attar, confirmed to NFL.com and NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport.

Are the New York Jets in free fall?

The Jets made the move two weeks after starter Darrelle Revis tore his anterior cruciate ligament.

Berry was slotted to start for the Detroit Lions before being arrested twice in a month during the offseason. Berry just completed a three-game suspension for a DUI and brandishing a gun in his hometown of Harrisburg, Pa.

The Jets gave up 34 points to the San Francisco 49ers in the first game without Revis. Kyle Wilson received an increased role and was called for pass interference on the first play of the game. He later missed a tackle during a Colin Kaepernick 7-yard touchdown run and was beat deep twice, though the passes were incomplete. Running back Joe McKnight was moved to cornerback during the week.

Berry started three games for the Lions in 2011 and had one interception during his first two years in the NFL.

Berry is no savior for the Jets defense, but he is an upgrade from a running back.
