The Jets open the week by confirming one move and elevating someone from the practice squad.
We've signed S Sheldrick Redwine and RB Josh Adams to the active roster.— New York Jets (@nyjets) September 6, 2021
Additionally, we've signed S Adrian Colbert and S Jarrod Wilson to the practice squad.

Adams being added to the team is probably just a hedge against La'Mical Perine's health because he's been dealing with a foot issue.
Redwine, whose signing was reported last week, gives the Jets safety depth, as do the two practice squad additions.
Saleh is familiar with Colbert, who was drafted by the 49ers and spent a couple of years there, during which time he made 12 of his 19 career NFL starts. The 27-year old has 93 tackles and eight passes defensed in his career and started two games for the Giants last season.
Wilson also had Saleh on his coaching staff during his rookie year. As he spent his first five years with the Jaguars, Wilson - who is also 27 - Wilson started just two games in his first three seasons, but then started every game in 2019 and 12 more last year. He has 188 tackles and three interceptions in his career.
The Jets had two roster spots available because of the Chris Herndon trade and from Jamison Crowder going on the Covid-19 reserve list. If Crowder is activated before Sunday, they'd need to make a cut.
