Coach Rex Ryan announced after Friday's preseason opener FS Jaiquawn Jarrett will be promoted to the first-team defense.
Ryan was pleased with Jarrett's activity (five tackles, three solo) against the Lions, while Antonio Allen (one stop) was less of a factor. Free safety is the biggest question mark on New York's defense. The Jets may wind up using slot CB Kyle Wilson to play more snaps than anyone else at the position.

Jets signed S Jaiquawn Jarrett to a reserve/future contract.
The Eagles' second-round pick in 2011 worked out for the Jets during the year after Philadelphia waived Jarrett in early September. Jarrett essentially spent the year out of football after showing no coverage ability with Philly. The Jets also signed QB Matt Simms, LB JoJo Dickson, DT Tevita Finau, OL Dennis Landolt, WR Royce Pollard and DL Jacquies Smith to reserve/future pacts.

Jets worked out former Eagles S Jaiquawn Jarrett.
Jarrett cleared waivers, as no team wanted to guarantee his rookie salary. Coach Andy Reid acknowledged the 2011 second-rounder was never a good fit in the Eagles defense. Jarrett will play special teams no matter where he ends up.

Jaiquawn Jarrett has settled in as the Eagles' third safety.
It speaks more to the team's lack of talent/depth at the position than any progression from Jarrett. Since he was selected in the second round last season, the Temple product has consistently been exposed in coverage. The Eagles badly need starters Nate Allen and Kurt Coleman to stay healthy.

The Philadelphia Inquirer believes Eagles S Jaiquawn Jarrett's roster spot is in danger.
Jarrett was demoted to the third-team defense following a disastrous preseason debut, and has appeared overwhelmed since being a second-round pick last season. His draft pedigree should him earn the benefit of the doubt at final cuts, but if he plays as poorly as he did on Thursday the rest of the exhibition season, the Eagles might have no choice.

Eagles 2011 second-round pick Jaiquawn Jarrett was demoted to the third-team defense as the team resumed training camp practice on Sunday.
Jarrett missed tackles and took bad angles in the Eagles' preseason opener, and this is likely the way the coaching staff is punishing him. The 54th overall pick in last year's draft, Jarrett appears to be out of the hunt to start.

The Philadelphia Inquirer's Jeff McLane does not anticipate 2011 second-round pick Jaiquawn Jarrett breaking camp as a starter.
Jarrett was a disappointment as a rookie, and the Eagles operated during the offseason as if they don't foresee a second-year leap. Look for O.J. Atogwe and Kurt Coleman to end up with the majority of strong safety snaps this season.

There has been no indication that the Eagles expect S Jaiquawn Jarrett to be a serious contributor in 2012.
Despite using a second-round pick on Jarrett in 2011, the Eagles have repeatedly passed him over. They brought in underwhelming Jarrad Page last year and just signed O.J. Atogwe to a one-year deal this week. Jarrett's struggles in coverage are a major liability. Nate Allen and Kurt Coleman are penciled in as the starting safeties.
