Paysinger was released by the Jets on Friday, Darryl Slater of The Star-Ledger reports. The veteran linebacker has a track record of decent play in the NFL, so it wouldn't be surprising to see his name land on another roster. However, he's on the free-agent market for the time being.
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.
Paysinger (knee) is active for Sunday's matchup with New England. Paysinger was held out of practice early in the week but was able to work his way up to a full participation in Friday's practice and was ultimately expected to play.
Paysinger (hamstring/calf) is active Sunday against the Bills. Paysinger appeared to have suffered an injury in practice this week, but it didn't prove overly serious.
Paysinger (hamstring/calf) is questionable to play against the Bills on Sunday. Paysinger sustained a leg injury in Thursday's practice, but it's unclear what he's specifically dealing with. If he's unable to play, Donald Butler will step in as the Dolphins' starting strongside linebacker.
