Former Detroit Lions cornerback Aaron Berry has inked a two-year deal with the New York Jets.

Just how desperate are the New York Jets for cornerback help with Darrelle Revis out for the season? They signed ex-Detroit Lions cornerback Aaron Berry to a two-year deal on Monday morning. Berry was first linked to the Jets last week, and they made the deal official on Monday.

Berry figured to be an important part of the Lions' secondary this season before he went and got into trouble off the field. After a DUI and an arrest involving a gun, the Lions decided to part ways with him. Berry's incidents capped off a long offseason filled with off-field troubles, and the Lions finally said enough was enough with him.

Berry ended up being suspended by the NFL for his off-field issues. He has served that suspension, meaning he is eligible to immediately play for the Jets. Jets head coach Rex Ryan had this to say about the move, according to ESPN New York:

"We feel Aaron has a chance to be successful on and off the field here," said Ryan, who met with Berry last Friday at the Jets' facility. "If we didn't believe that, then we wouldn't have brought him here."

Berry has worked out with Revis in the past, so he's probably a pretty good fit with the Jets, assuming he can stay out of trouble, of course.
