The Jets signed Marshall to their practice squad Monday.
Marshall was waived by the Jets on Saturday in order to boost depth in their defensive backfield. The pass catcher subsequently cleared waivers and has now agreed to join the team's practice squad.
Marshall was waived by the Jets on Saturday, Darryl Slater of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Marshall spent less than a week with the team after being added to the active roster Monday after his four-game suspension. The second-year receiver was replaced on the roster by cornerback Xavier Coleman, and could head to the practice squad if he clears waivers.
Despite satisfying his four-game suspension last week, Marshall wasn't immediately activated to the active roster. However, head coach Todd Bowles evidently decided the receiver's versatility was too valuable to pass up after Marshall averaged 11.6 YPC on 14 receptions while logging 24.9 yards per kick return as a rookie in 2016. While it isn't crystal clear where he stands on the depth chart from the get-go, Marshall would figure to slot in as the fourth receiver behind the established top trio of Jermaine Kearse, Robby Anderson and Jeremy Kerley.
Marshall's suspension was lifted by the commissioner on Monday, according to the league's official transaction log.
Marshall has officially completed a four-game suspension he was handed back in March for a violation of the league's policy on performance-enhancing drugs. However, head coach Todd Bowles said he isn't sure whether the Jets will add Marshall to the active roster, per ESPN's Rich Cimini. With five receivers already on the roster, Jeremy Kerley handling punt returns and ArDarius Stewart the primary kick returner, Marshall's services may no longer be needed.
Marshall (suspension) struggled in Saturday's preseason opener against the Titans, dropping a pass and drawing a holding penalty, ESPN.com's Rich Cimini reports.
Listed as a starer on the unofficial preseason depth chart, Marshall did have a 15-yard gain with Josh McCown under center on the opening drive, making up for his penalty earlier in the series. The second-year wideout's other target came at the beginning of the second quarter with Christian Hackenberg directing the offense. If not for his upcoming four-game suspension, Marshall would be on track to start the season in the No. 2 or 3 receiver role. He should still be involved once he's available, but his lengthy absence will give the likes of Ardarius Stewart and Charone Peake a chance to prove they're deserving of higher slots on the depth chart. Robby Anderson is the only wideout locked in as a starter.
