New York Jets sign RB Pete Guerriero, waive S Anthony Cioffi

The New York Jets have signed running back Pete Guerriero and waived recently-signed safety Anthony Cioffi.

A hometown hero joins the New York Jets. Who would ever not like the sound of that? Well, it’s come at the expense of another hometown hero, complicating matters just a bit.

On Tuesday morning, the Jets organization announced the signing of running back Pete Guerriero and waiving of safety Anthony Cioffi—the very same man who was signed back to the roster just a few days prior.

Guerriero led FCS in rushing a year ago with 1,995 yards and 18 touchdowns on 298 carries. The 5-foot-10, 190-pound Monmouth back also ran track and field for the college. He had previously visited and worked out for the Jets earlier in August.

The Lyndhurst, NJ native represents another local boy looking to make it big with the Jets. Josh Adams‘ injury opened the door for Joe Douglas to add another running back to the room.

The man who exits in Guerriero’s place is the previously-mentioned Anthony Cioffi.

Cioffi had recently re-signed with the team after he was originally waived to make room for tight end Connor Davis on Aug. 15. Just three days ago, Aug. 22, the former Rutgers safety was brought back in (in favor of Davis) once tight ends Ryan Griffin and Daniel Brown were both activated.

Cioffi is a native of Springfield, NJ.

So you want to be a professional football player? What Cioffi is currently experiencing is just a tiny glimpse into what many roster bubble players in the NFL experience every year. The numbers game is usually always dominated by injuries and open spots on the depth chart.
