Florham Park, NJ — After acknowledging how difficult the final cutdown period can be for coaches, general managers, and clubs on Tuesday, Jets head coach Robert Saleh stated, “I’m really excited to see what happens in the next 24 hours and the opportunities that some of these guys get.”
The team has filled 13 of its 16 practice squad spots this afternoon. All 13 of the new additions have at least spent this summer training and competing for Saleh and the Green & White.
Five of the 13 signees—WR Tarik Black, TE Kenny Yeboah, DL Jonathan Marshall, LB Hamsah Nasirildeen, and S Will Parks—also participated in the Jets’ regular-season game last year.
The league will still permit 16 practice squad players, but up to six of them can now be veterans (no rules on the number of accrued seasons). Additionally, players may now be promoted from the practice squad and demoted back there up to three times. In the preceding two seasons, players were permitted to be promoted and returned to the PS twice before a club had to add them to its active roster in order to use them in a regular-season game.
