Jets Sign Linebacker, DeVito Injured

According to Jets Confidential, the New York Jets signed LB Ryan Fowler, a 6-year veteran who has played for the Titans and Cowboys. According to the same source, the Jets released FB Jason Davis to make room for Fowler.

Fowler, 27, has played in 62 NFL games, recording 132 tackles (100 solo). Fowler entered the league in 2004 when he was signed by the Dallas Cowboys as an undrafted free agent.

Meanwhile, both DE Shaun Ellis and LB Calvin Pace were not present at this morning's practice, as they are suspended for the opening game. DE Mike DeVito, who was supposed to replace Ellis in the starting lineup, did not practice due to a hamstring injury. DT Sione Pouha will start if DeVito can't play. Pace was replaced in the lineup by LB Vernon Gholston.

    Why the hell don't we cut a CB instead of FB or other useful guys...

    All of our defensive backs will contribute more than a backup fullback. Ever heard of special teams?

    I wonder why they didn't cut a LB instead. The Jets currently have 11 linebackers on the roster.

    Carroll, Coleman, Izzo, Smith, Wright, Fowler + some of the young guys.... how many players do you want to keep just because they are great ST? YOu actually justify having 7 CB because they can contribute on ST? You think all 7 our CB will be active on gameday? Look MrE I really appreciate you insights on football but get the hell of my back... PS Petro why do you count 11? I count 9 + Cummings on the PS.
