The Jets have made more moves in addition to the Adrian Colbert cut that was announced earlier:
We've signed S Jarrod Wilson to the active roster and released S Adrian Colbert.— New York Jets (@nyjets) October 26, 2021
We've also placed LB Blake Cashman and LB Jamien Sherwood on IR.
The two players going onto injured reserve are not unexpected. Sherwood was already ruled out for the season and Cashman went down with a groin injury; the latest in a series of injuries for the former draft pick.
Needing reinforcements at linebacker, the Jets worked out Shaquem Griffin, Justin March-Lillard, Corey Thompson and LaRoy Reynolds, signing the latter to their practice squad. Maybe they'll add one of the others depending on CJ Mosley and Jarrad Davis' status at practice this week (and Quincy Williams' recovery from concussion).
Reynolds had 12 tackles, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery and a pass defensed in 16 games with Jeff Ulbrich's Falcons in 2020 and was with the 49ers in camp in 2019 so he should know the system. The 30-year old has seven career starts, albeit none since 2016. He has 117 tackles, three passes defensed, three fumble recoveries, three tackles for loss and three quarterback hits in his career.
Wilson moves back up as cover at the safety position. In four appearances with the Jets this year, including two starts, he has nine tackles, one tackle for loss and a quarterback hit. The Jets may yet sign Colbert to the practice squad because he has one roster elevation remaining.
