3 New York Jets players head to injured reserve
Once they return to practice, the Jets will have 21 days to place them on the active roster.
2 New York Jets players released
Zuniga has battled injuries throughout his first two seasons, but if he could have done anything of note on the field, his roster spot should have been just fine. Zuniga was atrocious, though, producing one pressure and one run stop over nine regular-season appearances and one preseason appearance.
3 New York Jets players signed to active roster
Neasman gives the Jets a much-needed backup safety while Davis recovers. Brown and Griffin round out a four-man tight end room that looked dangerously thin following their own releases and the trade of Chris Herndon.
The spot opened by Herndon’s exit was filled by the signing of free-agent safety Sheldrick Redwine, a 2019 fourth-round pick of the Browns who picked off Ben Roethlisberger in the 2020 playoffs.
2 New York Jets players claimed off of waivers
The Jets’ roster now sits at 53 players.
