Cooper signed with the Jets on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Cooper was waived by the 49ers a week ago but it didn't take him long to find a new home in the NFL. The defensive lineman played in five games this season for San Francisco, posting seven tackles and a half sack in that time. With the Jets dealing with several injuries on the defensive line, Cooper will be brought in to add some insurance to the unit.
