  • Jachai Polite: Cut by Rams

    The Rams waived Polite on Thursday.

    Polite saw action in all 12 games with the Rams this season, seeing most of his action on special teams and supplying four tackles (three solo) over that span. The Florida product will look to latch on elsewhere to earn a depth role at linebacker.

  • Rams' Jachai Polite: Joins Rams

  • Jachai Polite: Axed by Jets

    Polite was cut by the Jets on Saturday, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

    Polite's outlook has been declining since he injured his hamstring at the 2019 NFL Combine. The third-round rookie, who was at one point one of the most promising players in his draft class, will be cut before playing a regular season game. Given his potential, other NFL teams very well could take a chance on Polite.

  • Jets' Jachai Polite: Records two tackles

    Polite (hamstring) notched two tackles during Thursday's preseason game against the Giants.

    Polite dealt with a hamstring injury during the combine and aggravated it at his pro day, but he now appears to have gotten fully healthy. The third-round rookie is competing to carve out a rotational role behind Brandon Copeland in New York's defensive front.

  • Jets' Jachai Polite: Heads to Big Apple

    The Jets selected Polite (hamstring) in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 68th overall.

    New York continues to bolster its defensive front through the draft after getting Quinnen Williams with the third overall pick. Polite adds a pure pass-rushing presence off the edge. He fell to this point after a shaky combine that was lowlighted by a hamstring injury that he aggravated at his pro day. Still, there's plenty of upside to Polite's game. He showed explosiveness off the edge at Florida and is still young, having just turned 21 years old in March.
