The New York Jets signed the No. 6 overall pick to a multiyear deal Friday, in time for the defensive end to be on the field with his teammates for the start of practice on the second day of training camp.
``Vernon is in the building,'' coach Eric Mangini said. ``He signed, he'll practice, so that process - which was long - is through and now he can move forward and we can get him on the field and really start the intense teaching.''
The hulking Gholston, who set an Ohio State record with 14 sacks last season, is expected to immediately improve the Jets' pass rush.
