Jets CB Poole to have season-ending shoulder surgery
The New York Jets announced Thursday that starting cornerback Brian Poole will have season-ending surgery on his shoulder.
The Jets put Poole on injured reserve Tuesday, the same day they released CB Pierre Desir.
Poole, 28, played in all nine games (seven starts) for the Jets. He left their Week 9 loss to the New England Patriots after just eight defensive snaps. He reportedly also suffered a knee injury in the game.
Pro Football Focus rated Poole as the seventh-best cornerback in the NFL with a 77.1 overall grade. He had two interceptions, seven passes defensed, 44 tackles – two for loss — and a sack on the season.
Poole started his career as an undrafted free agent with the Atlanta Falcons in 2016. He played in 47 games (21 starts) for the Falcons before joining the Jets in 2019. He has seven career INTs.
Poole signed a one-year, $5 million contract extension in March. He is set to become a free agent after this season.
