Roster News: Jets sign punter Long to practice squad
After Braden Mann shanked a 20-yarder on Sunday that set up a touchdown, the Jets put him on notice:
New York Jets signed punter Ty Long to practice squad, per a league source, after working him out along with Joseph Charlton, Jake Julien and Michael Palardy @PFN365 #NYJets— Aaron Wilson (@AaronWilson_NFL) September 13, 2022
The 29-year old Long was the Chargers' punter for each of the last three seasons after previously having played in Canada. He was 5th in the league in yards per punt in 2019 and 10th in 2020 but his numbers dropped off last year.
The Jets will now presumably audition Long in practice and Mann will need to perform well to retain his job.
