NEW YORK — Carl Lawson knew a little bit about new Jets coach Robert Saleh from what he had seen and heard around the league.

The playmaking edge rusher searched YouTube to find out more and he loved what he saw.

The defensive end says he felt as though Saleh was talking to him in the videos and that was a reason he signed a three-year deal with the Jets.

The Jets made the signings of Lawson, wide receiver Corey Davis, linebacker Jarrad Davis and special teams ace Justin Hardee official Thursday.

New York also agreed to terms with wide receiver Keelan Cole and offensive lineman Dan Feeney.
