Dyson will replace Ty Law as one of the Jets' starting corners.


By going to the Jets, Dyson will end up making more money than he would have had he stayed with the Seahawks, who released him last month. Dyson was scheduled to make $3 million this season.


Dyson, 26, was drafted by the Titans, and went to the Seahawks prior to the 2005 season. Apparently, he didn't burn any ties with his former teams. Both Seattle and Tennessee were trying to talk Dyson into a lower paying contract to come back and compete for a starting job.


Dyson opted to make a new start with new head coach Eric Mangini and the Jets.


In his five years in the league, Dyson, a graduate of Utah, has 17 interceptions and 69 passes defensed.

Not bad, I guess. He kinda sucked last year when he wasn't injured. Maybe Mangini saw somthing in him.
