Position Listing
Erin Henderson
News
Henderson's (undisclosed) contract option for the 2017 season has been declined by the Jets, making him a free agent, Connor Hughes of NJ.com reports.

Henderson's release will create over $2.5 million in cap space for the Jets. After posting 45 tackles and forcing two fumbles in his 2015 return to the league, Henderson managed 21 stops in five games before being placed on the non-football injury list this past season. With Henderson out of the picture, 2016 first-rounder Darron Lee is now cemented as a starter at inside linebacker for New York.

Injury
Undisclosed - Questionable for the start of training camp
Sheldon Richardson
News
Richardson reported for the second day of voluntary offseason workouts, ESPN.com's Rich Cimini reports.

The subject of frequent trade rumors the past two offseasons, Richardson is set to play out the final year of his rookie contract at the fifth-year option salary of approximately $8 million. With Muhammad Wilkerson already carrying a huge contract and Leonard Williams still on his rookie deal, the Jets aren't expected to work out an extension to retain Richardson beyond 2017. A trade might seem to make sense for the rebuilding franchise, but Richardson's salary and career trajectory would probably prevent the Jets from fetching anything more than a middle-round selection -- which is what the team will get as compensation if he leaves as an unrestricted free agent next offseason. He thus figures to stick around next to Williams and Wilkerson for one more year, giving the Jets a formidable defensive line amidst an otherwise barren roster. Richardson did have 62 tackles, a forced fumble and two fumble recoveries in 15 games last season, partially making up for his career-low total of 1.5 sacks. His participation at the voluntary offseason program suggests he's fine with staying in New York for another season before hitting the open market next year.

Darryl Roberts
News
Roberts (shoulder) was a full participant at practice on Thursday.

Roberts was forced to leave Sunday's loss to Pittsburgh after injuring his shoulder. His return to practice is a positive sign and he should be expected to play in the Jets' Week 6 matchup with Houston.

Deshon Foxx
News
Foxx signed a contract with the Jets on Monday, Manish Mehta of The New York Daily News reports.

Foxx, who was waived by the Jets two weeks ago, will get another shot with the team after Devin Smith (knee) went down with yet another ACL tear.

Matt Forte
News
Forte (knee) is expected to be the Jets' primary running back this season, with Bilal Powell playing a complementary role, NJ.com reports.

Powell took over the Jets' backfield toward the end of last year in place of the injured Forte, and while there have been plenty of expectations that Powell could win the starting job, NJ.com is obviously not buying it. Nevertheless, Forte's upside will certainly be capped due to Powell's presence, as well as that of rookie Elijah McGuire, who figures to get more work as the season unfolds.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Bruce Carter
News
Carter signed a contract with the Jets on Thursday, Eric Allen of the Jets' official site reports.

Carter signed with the Jets prior to last season and went on to record 16 tackles and a pass defensed while playing in 13 games. Look for Carter to be a depth linebacker and special teams player once again in 2017.

Juston Burris
News
Burris (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Bills.

Burris was unable to practice earlier in the week, but will be good to go Sunday and is slated to provide depth at cornerback per usual.

Xavier Coleman
No Updates
Mike Catapano
News
Catapano (knee) was placed on IR Tuesday, Connor Hughes of New Jersey Advanced Media reports.

Catapano missed last week's game against the Dolphins due to his knee injury and they team since determined that he wouldn't be able to play in the final two weeks of the season. Josh Martin and Freddie Bishop figure to see a few extra reps with Catapano absent for the final couple tilts.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Demario Davis
News
Davis will take a $2.7 million pay cut for the upcoming season, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

Davis was traded from the Browns to the Jets at the start of June, but in order for the deal to be completed, he had to take a significant pay cut. Originally expected to make $3.7 million, Davis is now expected to pull in just $1 million, although there are some incentives worked into the deal where he could make some of that money back. The Jets recently released middle linebacker David Harris, so Davis is one of a few different options to potentially take over his spot in the lineup.

Frank Beltre
News
The Raiders signed linebacker Bojay Filimoeatui and cornerback Jansen Watson, and waived cornerback Johnny Adams, linebacker Frank Beltre and receiver D.J. Coles, reports the Bay Area News Group.
Jordan Jenkins
News
Jenkins (calf) has been listed as inactive for Thursday's game against Buffalo.

Jenkins missed practice during the week and was doubtful to play on Thursday, making his inactive status unsurprising. Now missing his second straight game, it's unclear when the rookie will make his debut, but the long week prior to the team's Week 3 game may be enough for him to return by then.

Josh McCown
News
McCown is still the favorite to start at quarterback this season, but his underwhelming showing during minicamp didn't help widen the gap on Christian Hackenberg, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.

McCown, who signed a one-year deal with New York after appearing in five games for the Browns last season, is being pegged as the Jets' defacto starter given their lack of quality options behind him. However, after the 37-year-old wasn't as crisp as anticipated during minicamp, when Hackenberg actually overachieved, his grip on the starting gig could be loosening. In the end, though, McCown's play during training camp and the preseason will ultimately determine whether he wins the job, leaving much to be monitored going forward.

Charone Peake
News
Peake (ankle) was a full participant in practice Thursday.

After Wednesday's practice session, Peake returned to the field and appears ready to play in Sunday's divisional matchup with the Dolphins. As the No. 5 wideout on the depth chart, he shouldn't have a particularly important role in the Jets' offensive game plan, but could play a role on special teams.

Ben Braden
No Updates
Anthony Johnson
News
The Patriots opted to waive Johnson on Monday, Mike Reiss of ESPN reports.

The decision to waive Johnson comes a day after he received his first start of the year. The 23-year-old recorded two tackles in Sunday's win over the Steelers. He is considered a strong candidate to return to the team's practice squad.

Patrick Gamble
No Updates
Christian Hackenberg
News
Hackenberg performed better than anticipated during minicamp, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.

Hackenberg is reportedly ahead of Bryce Petty for the Jets' No. 2 quarterback job, but the second-year pro could be closing the gap on projected starter Josh McCown some. According to the report, the 37-year-old McCown underwhelmed during minicamp, which made the timing of Hackenberg's improvement all the better. However, with training camp and the preseason still ahead, Hackenberg will have to sustain his challenge to unseat the veteran.

Corey Lemonier
News
Lemonier was re-signed by the Jets on Thursday.

The Auburn product latched on with the Jets at the end of the 2016 campaign after quarterback Bryce Petty was placed on injured reserve. Although he's been a journeyman to this point in his career, Lemonier is still just 25 and possesses above average athleticism. The Jets' deep linebacking corps will likely relegate him to a special teams role early in the season, however.

Marquess Wilson
News
Wilson (foot) signed a contract with the Jets on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN.com reports.

Given the departure of Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker, the Jets now have a massive void at wide receiver heading into training camp. As a result, it appears they'll be open to plenty of competition with a roster that currently holds 14 wideouts -- all of whom have four years or less experience in the league. Previously with the Bears, Wilson recorded 56 receptions and three touchdowns over four seasons, but he failed to make a lasting impact in the team's offensive game plan. The 6-foot-4 Wilson -- selected by Chicago in the seventh round of the 2013 NFL Draft - suited up in just three games in 2016 and ended his campaign on IR with a broken foot. He'll now get a fresh start with a team that definitely has some job openings at his position.

Chandler Catanzaro
News
Catanzaro didn't receive a restricted free-agent tender from the Cardinals, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.

Catanzaro was afforded multiple game-winning field-goal attempts last season, namely in Week 1 against the Patriots and Week 7 versus the Seahawks, but he was unable to connect. By season's end, he was successful on just 21 of 28 field goals and 43 of 47 extra points, barely eking out triple-digit points for the third consecutive campaign. The Cardinals signaled that they may be moving on with Thursday's signing of veteran placekicker Phil Dawson, but there's a chance Catanzaro could re-sign at a lesser price than the aforementioned RFA tender in order to let the best man take the role in 2017.

Marcus Gilchrist
News
Gilchrist (knee) was released by the Jets on Thursday, Eric Allen of the Jets' official site reports.

The Jets were reportedly waiting until Gilchrist could pass a physical to waive him. The addition of multiple safeties, including first-round pick Jamal Adams, during the draft all but assured the team would eventually release him. Gilchrist will be entering his age 28 season in 2017 and will likely catch on as a starter or top backup with another team.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Julian Stanford
News
Stanford re-signed with the Jets on Monday.

Stanford was released by the Jets in a procedural move last Friday but now returns as expected after just a couple of days. The 26-year-old played nine games for New York last season, totaling 22 tackles while also starting three of those contests. After dealing with an ankle problem last term, Stanford will hope to make the team's roster again as a depth linebacker and special teams contributor.

Antonio Allen
News
Allen (concussion) was placed on the Jets' injured reserve list Monday, Dennis Waszak Jr. of AP Sports reports.

Allen was waived/injured Saturday, but ultimately cleared waivers and will revert to the Jets' IR.

Injury
Concussion - Questionable for the start of training camp
Austin Seferian-Jenkins
News
Seferian-Jenkins could be used more in the Jets passing game this season under new offensive coordinator John Morton, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

The Jets used their tight ends mostly as blockers under former offensive coordinator Chan Gailey, and with Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker now gone, the wide receiver group is incredibly light. Seferian-Jenkins has reportedly looked good during OTAs, though his season will be stunted a bit due to his two-game suspension to start the year, which could give rookie tight end Jordan Leggett some early opportunities.

Injury
Suspension - Suspended until Week 3 vs. Miami
Lac Edwards

Chris Bordelon
No Updates
Darron Lee
News
Lee (ankle) is ready to play in Sunday's game against the Rams, ESPN reports.

Lee has missed three consecutive games with a sprained ankle, but returned to practice this week and is evidently nearing full health. His availability likely spells a significant decrease in playing time for Julian Stanford.

Quinton Patton
News
Patton (foot) was released from the Jets' injured reserve with an injury settlement, Rich Cimini of ESPN reports.

Patton underwent foot surgery in December and has yet to fully recover. With there likely being at least 10 receivers ahead of him on the 90 man depth chart, he faced long odds to make the roster even if he was healthy. Once his foot heals, Patton will look to catch on with another team in 2017.

Injury
Foot - Questionable for the start of training camp
Jordan Todman
News
Todman will sign with the Jets, NFL.com's Adam Caplan reports.

Todman spent the 2016 season in Indianapolis, where the veteran running back took over as the Colts' primary kick returner after WR Quan Bray landed on injured reserve. He'll likely need to earn a role on special teams with the Jets as well in order to make the final 53-man roster. With incumbent return man Jalin Marshall (suspension) set to miss the first four games of the regular season, Todman definitely has a chance.

Jeff Adams
No Updates
Kelvin Beachum
News
Beachum (knee) isn't participating in OTAs due to residual soreness in his surgically-repaired knee, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.

Beachum -- who underwent surgery back in 2015 -- didn't miss a single game in 2016 but was a fixture on the injury report during the second half of the season. Considering he was recently cleared to run full speed, it shouldn't be long until he's able to join his teammates on the field.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Brandin Bryant
No Updates
Jordan Leggett
News
The Jets selected Leggett in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 150th overall.

Leggett is a third- or fourth-round talent, but he likely fell to this point over work ethic concerns. If Leggett puts in the necessary work, though, he could earn playing time surprisingly early with the Jets. At 6-foot-5, 258 pounds, Leggett is big enough to block but athletic enough to make a real impact as a pass catcher. Meanwhile, the Jets might have the worst tight end depth chart in the league.

Jonotthan Harrison
No Updates
Robby Anderson
News
Anderson was charged Sunday in Miami with a felony count of resisting arrest with violence and obstruction of justice, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

Anderson was in Miami to attend a music festival and was either on the stage or backstage when he was arrested by police. There isn't much information available about the incident aside from the charges Anderson received, so the Jets will likely remain mum on the matter until the legal process is sorted out. As an undrafted rookie last season, Anderson emerged as one of the Jets' better receivers, recording 42 catches for 587 yards and two touchdowns. With Brandon Marshall leaving for the Giants this offseason, Anderson could take on a larger role in 2017.

Myles White
News
White signed a future/reserve contract with the Jets on Wednesday, Randy Lange of the team's official site reports.

White has bounced around the league the past three years, including stints with the Packers, Giants, and Jets. He heads back to the Jets with some baseline knowledge of the offense after spending six weeks of the season on the team's practice squad.

Jamal Adams
News
The Jets selected Adams in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft, sixth overall.

Adams is the top safety in the draft and a likely Day 1 starter despite the presences of Calvin Pryor and Marcus Gilchrist. Arguably the top defender on a dominant LSU defense, Adams (6-feet, 214 pounds) showed 4.4 speed at the LSU pro day while otherwise showing good agility numbers at the Combine (6.96-second three-cone, 4.13-second 20-yard shuttle). Because of the position he plays and the likely playing time awaiting him, Adams figures to arrive on the IDP radar right away.

Deon Simon
News
Jets tight end Jeff Cumberland (concussion) did not travel with the team to London, where the team plays the Dolphins on Sunday.

With the Jets having waived nose tackle Deon Simon after practice Wednesday, we'd expect the team to add tight end depth to the roster in advance of the game.

Alex Balducci
News
The Jets claimed Balducci off waivers Wednesday, Ralph Vacchiano of SNY.tv reports.

Balducci was a defensive lineman throughout his collegiate career at Oregon, but made the switch to the offensive line last season as a member of the 49ers. He ended up playing just two games for the 49ers after being promoted from the team's practice squad and was eventually cut during the offseason. He'll now head to the Jets, where he'll serve in a depth role at guard if he's able to make the 53-man roster out of training camp.

ArDarius Stewart
News
Stewart (groin/thumb) is not sure if he will be ready for the start of training camp, though coach Todd Bowles is optimistic, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

Selected in the third round of this year's draft at No. 79 overall, Stewart couldn't have landed in a better position to earn immediate playing time, though the likelihood of poor quarterback play figures to limit his productivity even if he's regularly on the field. His bid for a starting role did take a bit of a hit when he missed time at OTAs due to a thumb injury which ultimately required surgery in June. With the rookie already slated to miss minicamp, the Jets decided it was best that he also have surgery on a lingering groin injury that likely would've required attention at some point in his career. In the meantime, Eric Decker's release further thinned out a shaky receiving corps, leaving Quincy Enunwa as the No. 1 target and Robby Anderson -- who may be facing a suspension -- as the team's only other wideout with any real NFL track record. Even if he misses a good chunk of camp, Stewart should be in the mix for a key early-season role, with the Jets hoping his polish as a receiver makes up for his middling athletic measurables.

Injury
Groin - Questionable for the start of training camp
Brandon Shell
No Updates
Quincy Enunwa
News
Enunwa will not participate in the Jets' mandatory minicamp this week due to a neck injury, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

Enunwa's neck injury doesn't appear to be a serious issue at this point, but the Jets will proceed cautiously with their No. 1 receiver heading into training camp. Fellow wideout ArDarius Stewart will also be held out this week, so Robby Anderson, Charone Peake and Devin Street could all benefit from additional reps in practice.

Injury
Neck - Questionable for the start of training camp
Brian Parker
News
The Jets signed Parker on Thursday, Ethan Greenberg of the team's official site reports.

Undrafted in 2015, Parker subsequently made nine appearances with the Chiefs during that season, corralling one of two targets for six yards. The tight end didn't make the cut last preseason, though, only to spend two days with the Jets before he was waived/injured just before the start of the regular season. After a year out of football, he'll have a chance to land a roster spot in a Jets positional group bereft of much talent.

Leonard Williams
News
Williams recorded half a sack along with 10 tackles Monday against the Colts.

Williams broke a four-game drought and moved to 6.5 sacks on the season. He showed what he's capable of when he registered 4.5 sacks in the first five games of 2016, and his ability to get hot makes him a player who could help teams make a title run in IDP leagues.

Bryce Petty
News
Petty (shoulder) said he is 100 percent healthy for the start of OTAs, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

The 2015 fourth-round selection had surgery in early January to repair a torn labrum in his non-throwing shoulder. His recovery seems to have gone according to plan, giving him plenty of time to make his mark in a quarterback competition with Josh McCown and Christian Hackenberg. Petty appears the least likely of the trio to earn the Week 1 starting job, as he completed only 56.4 percent of his passes last season, with three touchdowns and seven interceptions in six games. McCown has a huge advantage in experience, while Hackenberg has the benefit of higher draft status as a 2016 second-round selection.

Darrelle Revis
News
Revis won't face league discipline for the felony assault charges that were dropped in March, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.

Revis was arrested in February and charged for his alleged involvement in an altercation that left two men unconscious. After his March hearing, however, all charges against Revis were dropped. Upon completing its own review, the NFL also saw no reason to punish Revis, who was released by the Jets shortly after the incident. Now a free agent, the 31-year-old can ensure prospective teams of his availability, even though his poor performance last season may be the larger concern on that front.

Jeremy Clark
No Updates
Mike Pennel
News
Pennel signed a contract with the Jets on Wednesday.

Pennel was claimed by the Jets back in February but the team didn't tender him as a restricted free agent and let him hit the open market. The details of his deal are unclear, but he'll be with the team for at least next season. The four-year veteran had 24 tackles, including a sack, and a forced fumble while playing in eight games for the Packers in 2016.

Muhammad Wilkerson
News
Wilkerson will need to rebound from a disappointing 2016 campaign or risk being released next offseason, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.

Wilkerson signed a massive five-year, $86 million extension with the Jets last July, only to then see his production dip from 64 tackles and 12.0 sacks in 2015 to just 58 stops and 4.5 sacks last season. Amid tardiness and concerns over his effort last year, the fact that Wilkerson's contract currently contains no fully guaranteed money after this season gives the Jets the option of cutting their loses should he continue to underwhelm. While that should motivate Wilkerson to return to his Pro-Bowl best, unlike last year, an offseason without having to rehab from surgery on a broken leg also bodes in his favor. Overall, the 27-year-old will need to prove worthy of his hefty contract in order to reap the benefits of it down the road.

Khiry Robinson
News
Robinson (leg) has been invited to participate in the Jets' minicamp as a tryout.

The Jets released Robinson in March, as he had a prolonged recovery from a broken leg. However, the team has opted to bring him back to minicamp as a tryout. Coach Todd Bowles stated, "We just wanted to see where he was physically" in reference to Robinson's invite. The veteran figures to compete for a job providing depth at running back if he is able to stay healthy.

Dexter McDougle
News
McDougle was promoted to the Jets' active roster on Saturday, Ralph Vacchiano of Sportsnet New York reports.

McDougle was promoted due to the Jets possibly being without both Buster Skrine (knee) and Marcus Williams (ankle) in Week 10. He's unlikely to be much more than a depth corner and special teams player.

Chris Harper
News
Harper signed a contract with the Jets on Tuesday, Ethan Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.

Harper was released by the 49ers at the beginning of the month after one season with the team. In nine games with the 49ers, the 23-year-old recorded 13 receptions for 133 yards. He'll now a chance to compete with a whole host of wideouts vying for spots behind starters Eric Decker and Quincy Enunwa.

Marcus Maye
News
The Jets selected Maye in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 39th overall.

Maye was a standout performer in a dominant Florida defense, and at the Florida pro day he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.47 seconds while showing sound agility numbers. It's a strange pick after the Jets took safety Jamal Adams in the first round.

Bilal Powell
News
Powell could play a complementary role to starter Matt Forte this season, NJ.com reports.

Powell took over the backfield at the end of last season when Forte was out injured, and while he played well enough for many to think he could win the starting job this year, he's still expected to be used regularly as the No. 2. Whether Powell wins the starting job or not, the two veterans figure to split touches, with rookie Elijah McGuire factoring in, which obviously limits their respective upsides.

Elijah McGuire
News
McGuire is expected to carve out a role on offense behind Matt Forte and Bilal Powell this season, NJ.com reports.

McGuire, a sixth-round pick in this year's draft, could be used as a pass catcher out of the backfield, though with Forte and Powell expected to get a vast majority of the touches, it's tough to see the rookie making a meaningful fantasy impact if the incumbents stay healthy.

Frankie Hammond
News
Hammond has signed a reserve/future contract with the Jets.

Hammond spent this past season on the Chiefs practice squad. Since entering the league as an undrafted rookie in 2014, Hammond has featured in 25 games, primarily making his impact felt as a punt returner. However, in order to make the Jets roster ahead of next season, he may need to show more ability as a pass-catcher. To this point, Hammond boasts just four career receptions.

Bryson Keeton
News
Keeton signed a contract with the Jets on Friday.

Keeton is an undrafted rookie out of Montana State who has spent the entire season thus far on the Jets' practice squad. It isn't certain how much playing time he'll receive in his first game as a pro.

Brisly Estime
News
Estime (Achilles) was added to the Jets' reserve/injured list Tuesday.

Estime tore his Achilles during the first week of OTAs and after initially being released he was added back onto the roster under the reserve/injured list. The wideout does not cost the Jets a roster spot and will likely remain with the team for at least the remainder of the offseason, although there is no chance he plays this year.

Julian Howsare
News
Howsare signed a future/reserve contract with the Jets on Wednesday, Randy Lange of the team's official site reports.

Howsare spent the past two offseasons with the Jets but has failed to make the 53-man roster each time. He spent 12 weeks on the Jets' practice squad this year and will look to solidify himself as the team's fullback after playing linebacker in college.

Doug Middleton
No Updates
Josh Martin
News
Martin re-signed with the Jets on Thursday.

The 25-year-old special teams ace will return to the Jets in 2017 after one of his best professional seasons to date. He logged 14 tackles on special teams and also chipped in 0.5 sacks. He'll likely remain in a special teams-heavy role given the Jets' depth at linebacker.

Morris Claiborne
News
Claiborne (ribs) signed his contract with the Jets on Saturday, Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News reports.

The 27-year-old Claiborne agreed to a one-year deal worth $5 million Friday. He'll look to revive his career in New York after five injury-filled seasons with Dallas.

Injury
Ribs - Questionable for the start of training camp
Kellen Davis
News
Davis (elbow) visited the Browns on Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

After spending the first five seasons of his career with the Bears, Davis is on the verge of joining his sixth organization in as many years, three of which he's played for. The Browns were actually one of them, rostering the tight end during the 2013 offseason and preseason before axing him just before the start of the regular season. Since leaving Cleveland, he's been available for 45 games, starting 20, with the Seahawks, Lions, and Jets over the last four seasons, yet he's managed a measly six receptions (on 19 targets) for 50 yards and two touchdowns. In 2016, he was unable to haul in his only target before landing on IR with an elbow injury, so he's clearly reaching the end of the line as a professional.

Elbow - Questionable for the start of training camp
Jalin Marshall
News
Jets head coach Todd Bowles hinted that Marshall's upcoming four-game suspension could hurt his place on the depth chart, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.

Marshall was expected to compete with Robby Anderson and Devin Smith, among others, for slotting behind Eric Decker (shoulder) and Quincy Enunwa. Between his four-game PED suspension and the addition of free-agent signing Quinton Patton, it seems Marshall is in danger of sliding way down the depth chart, possibly even needing to compete for a roster spot during training camp. Things could open up a bit if the Jets eventually part ways with Decker as part of their ongoing rebuild.

Injury
Suspension - Suspended until Week 5 at Cleveland
Corey White
News
White signed a contract with the Jets on Thursday, Kimberley A. Martin of Newsday.com reports.

White heads to New York after the Jets waived return specialist Brisly Estime. A former Bill, he recorded two interceptions and four passes defensed in 15 games, including four starts, last season. The 27-year-old will compete for a spot on the 53-man roster in September.

Lawrence Thomas
News
Thomas (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve, the team announced Thursday.

Just a day after head coach Todd Bowles originally said that Thomas would miss "at least a couple weeks" with a torn labrum, Thomas was placed on injured reserve, so the timetable for his return is still up in the air. Sheldon Richardson and Jarvis Jenkins will likely see an increase in snaps with Thomas out. Jeremy Ross was signed Thursday to the team's open roster spot.

Rontez Miles
News
Miles recorded just one tackle during the Jets' Week 1 loss to the Bengals.

Miles stepped up after Calvin Pryor briefly left the game due to injury. The 27-year-old has not seen a lot of action since undergoing season-ending surgery on his shin back in 2014.

Derrick Jones
News
The Jets selected Jones in the sixth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 204th overall.

Jones (6-foot-2, 189 pounds) is a lanky corner who is just an upside lottery ticket for the Jets at this point in the draft. At the Mississippi pro day he ran a 4.48-second 40 along with a 41-inch vertical and a remarkable 140-inch broad jump.

Ben Ijalana
News
Ijalana is not participating in practice this week after undergoing a knee scope last week, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

Ijalana, who re-signed with the Jets in March on a two-year deal, is projected to be healthy for training camp as the knee issue isn't a long-term concern at this point. He'll look to earn the starting spot at left tackle once again in 2017 upon his return to full health.

Spencer Paysinger
News
Paysinger signed with the Jets on Friday.

Paysinger spent his first four seasons in New York with the Giants, before playing for the Dolphins the past two years. The 28-year-old is coming off the second-best season of his career, as he totaled 59 tackles and a fumble recovery in 2016. His signing will help bolster the Jets' depth at linebacker after the release of David Harris earlier this week.

Shamarko Thomas
News
Thomas (concussion) signed a contract with the Jets on Thursday, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

Thomas saw his 2016 season end prematurely due to a concussion after playing in just eight games. In his four years with the Steelers, Thomas was never able to improve upon the 29 tackles of his rookie campaign, totaling just 24 tackles over his last three seasons with Pittsburgh. Now with the Jets, Thomas will need to earn a spot as a depth safety and special teams player.

Williams signed his tender with the Jets on Monday, Ethan Greenberg of the team's official site reports.

The four-year vet racked up 33 combined tackles and two interceptions one year ago. Given his production over the last two seasons and the Jets' dwindling secondary that no longer includes Darrelle Revis, Williams projects to function as one the team's primary cornerbacks heading into training camp.

Lorenzo Mauldin
News
Mauldin was arrested on Wednesday and charged with a misdemeanor assault stemming from a nightclub altercation in April, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

Mauldin turned himself in Wednesday morning after allegedly attacking a man in nightclub almost two months ago. "We have been monitoring the developments and this matter is under review of personal conduct policy," NFL spokesperson Brian McCarthy said. Mauldin has been competing for a starting linebacker role throughout minicamp.

Brandon Wilds
News
Wilds (hamstring) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Bills.

With Matt Forte out, Bilal Powell is in line to start Sunday's game, with Wilds and Brandon Burks on hand to work in complementary roles in the Jets' Week 17 offense.

Devin Street
News
Street signed a contract with the Jets on Monday, Ethan Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.

Street heads to New York after the Jets put their third wideout, Quinton Patton (foot), on injured reserve Monday. Street was released by the Patriots a little less than two weeks ago after spending five games with the Colts last season. The Jets currently have 14 receivers on their active roster but more than half of them will likely fail to make the 53-man roster. Street will have to separate himself from the crowd if he wants to be around in September.

Romar Morris
News
Morris was waived by the Jets on Monday with an injury designation, Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post reports.

Morris was competing for a spot in the crowded Jets backfield prior to being released. He injured his shoulder and will require surgery, which was the reason for the team deciding to part ways. He'll be eligible for the injured reserve list if he clears waivers.

Smith (knee) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Ethan Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.

Ronald Martin
News
Martin was called up from the practice squad Tuesday, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

With Marcus Gilchrist landing on injured reserve Tuesday, the Jets decided to promote Martin. The safety had previously spent time with the team in the preseason before being waived and eventually signed back on to the practice squad. He'll likely compete with Doug Middleton for defensive reps.

Steve McLendon
News
McLendon (hamstring) was ruled out of Sunday's game versus the Bills.

Mauldin injured his hamstring in Week 13 and hasn't played since. Now done for the year, he'll finish his first season in New York with 28 tackles and 2.5 sacks across 11 games.

Hansen (knee) is expected to be ready for training camp.

Hansen, who was held out of OTAs due to a hamstring issue, is missing out on this week's mandatory minicamp due to soreness in his knee. However, his absence sounds like more of a precautionary than anything. Look for him to be back to normal by training camp.

Injury

Buster Skrine
News
Skrine (concussion) practiced in full Thursday.

Skrine sustained a concussion in Week 14 and was unable to suit up for last Sunday's game against the Dolphins. While it isn't certain if he's officially cleared concussion protocol yet, Skrine's uninhibited participation in Thursday's practice suggests he's on the right track to play Saturday versus the Patriots.
