The Jets have confirmed that the Alex Lewis trade, which was contingent on him passing a physical, is now final. They also confirmed the corresponding move:
G Alex Lewis has passed his physical and we have released TE Nick Truesdell. https://t.co/nIJXR73g6p— New York Jets (@nyjets) August 6, 2019
Truesdell was the AAF tight end the Jets picked up on Sunday. He practiced just twice with the team. This means the Jets are back to having just five tight ends on the roster, including Chris Herndon who will start the season on the suspended list.
