The Latest on NFL free agency Thursday (all times EDT)

10 p.m.

A person with direct knowledge of the contract tells The Associated Press that the New York Jets and cornerback Brian Poole have agreed on a one-year deal worth $3.5 million.

The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the team had not announced the deal.

Poole played his first three NFL seasons with Atlanta, but the Falcons did not tender him a contract as a restricted free agent — making him an unrestricted free agent and free to sign elsewhere.

The 26-year-old Poole has four career interceptions and five sacks. Signed in 2016 as an undrafted free agent out of Florida, he had his best season last year when he set career highs with three interceptions, three sacks and 74 total tackles.

Poole will likely replace Buster Skrine as the Jets’ nickel corner. Skrine signed with Chicago as a free agent after four seasons in New York.
