Pitoitua is a four-year veteran with 37 games played in stops with the New York Jets and Kansas City Chiefs. He started 10 of his 15 games last year with the Chiefs where he led the linemen with 32 tackles.

Pitoitua signed a one-year extension through 2012 last September, but the Jets have lots of depth on the defensive line.
