Roster News: Jets to re-sign Bawden to practice squad

It soon became apparent that this release was just a procedural move:

Bawden is dealing with a knee issue but once healthy can continue to be elevated from the practice squad for the rest of the season and has his full salary guaranteed as a vested veteran anyway.

The only issue will be if the Jets have further injuries that require them to elevate players from the practice squad. That might force them to cut or IR someone to create room.
