The Jets have signed several players in the past few days, mostly just for bodies in camp. There will be many more of these in the next few weeks, so don’t get too excited/freaked out.
- DE Demario Ambrose from Arkansas. As a senior with the Razorbacks, Ambrose recorded 32 tackles and 3.5 sacks.
- WR Wes Kemp from Missouri and WR Chris Forcier from Furman. After injuries sidelined Jeremy Kerley (hamstring), Santonio Holmes (soreness/soft tissue), Chaz Schilens (groin) AND Scotty McKnight (hamstring) the Jets were in need of more bodies for camp. Don’t forget rooke WR Jordan White is also recovering from his foot injury.
- DB Marcus Lott from Coastal Carolina.
- S/DB Devon Torrence. Torrence played for the Bengals in 2011. Coincidence he was signed 7 days before the Jets first preseason game vs. Cinci? Probably. But I like to stir the pot a bit.
The roster is now at the 90 man maximum for training camp.
The team also waived FB Fui Vakapuna (I guess John Connor’s job is safe) and S Tracy Wilson this week.
