FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) - The New York Jets have signed third-round draft pick Shonn Greene to a multiyear deal.

The bulldozing running back out of Iowa was the first pick of the third round after the Jets traded up to select him.

Greene rushed for a school-record 1,850 yards and 20 touchdowns,
and was selected the Big Ten's offensive player of the year.

He could provide a complement to Thomas Jones and Leon Washington, or provide insurance if negotiations go awry with
Jones.

With the signing Monday, the Jets have inked all three of their draft picks, including quarterback Mark Sanchez and offensive lineman Matt Slauson.
