The Jets have confirmed that they signed C Jacolby Ashworth and DB Nick Taylor to reserve/future contracts.
Bent, TheJetsBlog.comWe brought you news of the Taylor signing a few days ago, but the Jets have now confirmed the move.
Ashworth – a 6-3, 300 pound offensive lineman who was an undrafted free agent and spent the offseason with Washington – is listed as a center but saw his only preseason action (18 snaps) at left guard. According to the Jets official site, Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley and former Miami Dolphins fullback Jorvorskie Lane are Ashworth’s brothers and journeyman center Rex Hadnot is his cousin.
The pair were reported to have been among eight players that worked out for the team at the end of last month.
