Buzz: Jets to sign linebacker Kevin Pierre-Louis

According to Manish Mehta on twitter the Jets are putting the finishing touches on a two-year, $6 million contract for linebacker Kevin Pierre-Louis, who visited with the team a few days ago.

NFL Draft Diamonds reported the news first:

Pierre-Louis has only started one game in his four-year career but played more than in the past last season after having moved from the Seahawks to the Chiefs. He posted a career high 41 tackles.

The 26-year old is a great athlete as you can see below and has been a special teams contributor for the Chiefs. He can provide the Jets with some valuable veteran depth at inside linebacker, which is something they currently lack. However, he was reportedly arrested and charged with drugs and traffic offenses in late-January.

You'll get your KPL in-depth scouting report when you get it, okay? Stop hassling me.
