The New York Jets have reached agreement on a a three-year contract with defensive tackle Sione Pouha, a source said Monday.
Terms of the deal weren't immediately available. Pouha was considered the Jets' most important free agent to re-sign. He participated in 60 percent of the team's defensive plays.
The 6-foot-3, 325-pound defensive tackle has started 44 games for Rex Ryan on defense over the past three seasons. He had 58 tackles last year

Showing some consistency. We need this guy if our locker room is going to improve plus it helps with the young guys on the DLine.

The New York Jets identified nose tackle Sione Pouha as a "priority" free agent, and they accomplished their goal of keeping him off the open market.





The two sides agreed to a three-year contract, according a source. Details weren't immediately available.

Pouha, 33, a three-year starter, isn't a dynamic pass rusher, but he's regarded as one of the better run stuffers in the league. He recorded 58 tackles last season, most on the team among the linemen, even though he only played primarily on first and second down. He also made one sack, one forced fumble and two fumble recoveries.

He participated in 60 percent of the team's defensive plays last season and has started 44 games for Rex Ryan on defense over the past three seasons.

The long-term deal is a bit risky because of his age, but Pouha got a late start in the NFL and hasn't accumulated as much wear and tear as other interior linemen. Because he served a religious mission while in college, he didn't get to the league until he was 26. He was a third-round pick of the Jets in 2005.






It was important to retain the 6-foot-3, 325-pound Pouha because his backup, second-year nose tackle Kenrick Ellis, isn't ready to step into a full-time role. Ellis, a third-round pick from Hampton (Va.), appeared in only five games last season and made little impact.

Pouha, a captain last season, also is a positive locker-room presence. That, no doubt, factored into his value, considering the Jets' locker-room issues last season.

The Jets still have 10 unrestricted free agents, but they're not expected to re-sign any before the start of free agency. The group includes safeties Jim Leonhard and Brodney Pool, linebacker Bryan Thomas and quarterback Mark Brunell.

(Chandler)'s a nice piece as long as he's the 7th most important player on your roster....I think they're going to be disappointed when they see he's just a pumped-up Drew Gooden.

Definitely. I like how we got this out of the way before he hit the market and can focus on free agents now

Key signing. Was the one guy we really couldn't let go. K. Ellis isn't a factor yet. I like the length, who knows about the numbers yet.

I can't wait until Cimini starts bashing Kenrick Ellis next year when he doesn't start over Pouha.
