Buzz: Jets Announce Practice Squad
Bent , theJetsBlog.com
Via the Jets’ twitter account (@nyjets) here are the names of the seven guys who have cleared waivers and been signed to the practice squad today:
- T Paul Cornick
- LB/S Marcus Dowtin
- DB Donnie Fletcher
- WR/KR Royce Pollard
- DE/OLB Ricky Sapp
- TE Hayden Smith
- WR Jordan White
Note that there is still one spot available for Antonio Allen to be added to the squad if he clears waivers. (In fact, if they apply for Hayden Smith to be treated as an international player, then a ninth spot will be available). Dedrick Epps has limited practice squad eligibility remaining and I would not expect him to make it. Marcus Dixon is not eligible.
If any team signs these players off the practice squad, they will – by rule – have to be on that team’s active roster for four weeks. That will not apply to Smith if the NFL agrees to treat him as an international player because international players cannot be signed off a practice squad by another team.
