Roster News: Jets waive Maulet, confirm Countess signing

The Jets have confirmed the signing reported earlier today:

Maulet had been filling in on special teams with Trenton Cannon injured so perhaps this is a sign Cannon can return soon. Countess will probably be Brian Poole's backup at the slot cornerback position from now on as well as adding some safety depth.

The Jets also announced that they have signed Corbin Kaufusi to the practice squad, where he joins his brother, Bronson. The 26-year old is an 6'9", 275-pound undrafted rookie defensive lineman. He had four tackles and two passes in preseason after registering 16 sacks in three seasons at BYU. Kaufusi takes the place of safety Bennett Jackson, who was poached by the Ravens.
