Jets Free Agent Signings

Jets claim Leon McFadden off waivers, add Simms to PS

Admin - August 31, 2014

It did not take long for the Jets to make a move for a free agent cornerback. They claimed CB Leon McFadden off waivers. McFadden, who was cut by the Browns, was a 3rd round pick in 2013 and played in all 16 games last season, recording 19 tackles (13 solo). He's pretty small, 5'9", 195 lbs, and will most likely feature only in nickel and dime formations.

QB Matt Simms, who was cut by the Jets, has cleared waivers and will be placed on the Gang Green's practice squad.

The Jets have also signed to the practice squad the following players: S Rontez Miles, DL Tevita Finau, OL Brent Qvale and TE Chris Pantale.
