Joe Douglas and the New York Jets have re-signed offensive lineman Josh Andrews and tight end Daniel Brown.
Josh Andrews is heading back to the team he signed with this past offseason.
My client Josh Andrews is being signed back to the New York Jets 53-man roster. Had a great camp and is going to be a valuable C/G for them this season.

Andrews, 29, becomes one of three Jets set to rejoin the 53-man roster on Sunday after a Saturday cut.
Catching on with the Philadelphia Eagles as an undrafted free agent in 2014, Andrews played three seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles. Joe Douglas was with the organization from 2016 through 2019, which means he and Andrews had already crossed paths before this offseason.
Andrews then joined the Indianapolis Colts for two seasons.
Jets are signing TE Daniel Brown back to the 53-man roster, per source

Interestingly, the team kept just three tight ends to begin the 2019 season (Chris Herndon‘s injury helped that number come to fruition). If nothing changes, the team will carry four (Herndon, Ryan Griffin, Trevon Wesco and Brown).
Brown, 28, played in all 16 games for the Jets last year (starting 11). He finished with 72 yards and a touchdown on seven receptions.
The three Sunday additions mean Douglas will have to shave three off the initial 53. One solid bet is Vyncint Smith being moved to a reserve spot due to core-muscle surgery. As the Jets fill out this season’s extended practice squad, 53-man roster moves will have to be made.
