    He was our most important free agent IMO. Very good move.

    That's fantastic value for the best slot CB on the market but I wish we had locked him up for more than a year.

    Why not 2 year 12 million?

    I'd assume Poole is well aware he's one of the best slot corners in the league and that the salary cap is gonna go up next year...

    What did he make last year? $5 million is great. If he plays like he did last year in 2020, he will get a big raise in 2021.

    Joe D!!!!!

    On a roll baby! Loving his level hotheadedness so far. Makes me much more comfortable then just aimlessly spending money

    Very good. Surprised he didn't have more of a market.

    Great news! Since there are two threads, I'll say "Championship" in this one too!

    I think it's a combo of him not wanting to go longer than one year and knowing that he'll have only one year to prove himself and earn himself a nice contract when the cap goes up.

    Wish we could have gotten an option on a 2nd year.

    Fantastic contract. Poole was one of the highest rated cover corners in the league last year, regardless of slot vs outside. He’s willing in run support as well.

    Maybe he wants to stay here. No joke, people want to play for Gregg Williams.

    Gotta love it. He played well for us as a 1st year Jet last year. I don't remember which team drafted him a couple seasons ago but living in Florida as an FSU fan I remember he was really good with the Gators love bringing back a young CB who showed flashes of ability and potential.

    Wow. I'm shocked. Now grab Robby Anderson at $11 million and we're all set.

    Apologies to everyone I told he would command way more this offseason.

    Can't believe Joe D pulled that off! Good signing. Great value.
