New York Jets free agent deal with Marqui Christian is no more (Report)

The New York Jets and free-agent safety Marqui Christian have not been able to agree on the previously reported agreement.

Perhaps Marqui Christian is the most impactful New York Jets employee since Anthony Barr.

Perhaps not.

All kidding aside, the New York Jets have moved on after they and Christian’s camp couldn’t come together on the previously-reported one-year, $2 million deal, via Brian Costello of the New York Post.

Christian, 25, was seemingly all wrapped up as one of the Jets’ newest additions. Earlier in the week, the reports flooded in that he’d join Gregg Williams’s versatile defense, most likely serving as the third safety (Big Dime action), the very same spot he held down in Los Angeles with the Rams.

Six days later, it has all fallen apart, similar to Barr’s deal last offseason when Mike Maccagnan was still running the show.

The only detail surrounding the falling out refers to both sides not agreeing to final contract terms.

The Midwestern State product appeared in all 16 games for the Rams a year ago. He finished the season with two pass deflections and 38 total tackles with one for loss.

For now, Matthias Farley is most likely the third safety for the Jets. He possesses the ability to play both in the box and in coverage, especially center field.
