NEW YORK — The New York Jets are re-signing linebacker Neville Hewitt to a one-year deal worth $2 million, according to agent Drew Rosenhaus.
Hewitt was a valuable backup-turned-starter last year for the Jets at inside linebacker after season-ending injuries to Avery Williamson and C.J. Mosley.
He finished third on the team with 78 overall tackles, three sacks, two interceptions and seven quarterback hits.
