Joe Robbins/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — The New York Jets signed cornerback Dimitri Patterson on Tuesday.

ESPN.com reports it’s a one-year deal worth $3 million.

The 30-year-old Patterson played last season with Miami, recording 18 tackles, six passes defended, and four interceptions in six games.

The Dolphins cut Patterson last month to save $5.4 million against the salary cap.

Since Antonio Cromartie has been cut, the 5-foot-11 Patterson could get a chance to compete for a starting job.

In eight NFL seasons, Patterson has started 20 games, compiling 142 tackles, 36 passes defended, nine interceptions and two sacks.
