Trufant to Active Roster, Kroul to P-Squad

Posted Dec 30, 2010

The New York Jets have signed defensive back Isaiah Trufant to the active roster and defensive lineman Matt Kroul to the practice squad. The announcements were made by general manager Mike Tannenbaum.

Trufant (5'8", 170) was signed to the Jets practice squad on Dec. 8. He played the 2010 UFL season with Las Vegas, where he was named 2010 UFL Defensive Player of the Year after he led the Locomotives with four interceptions. In 2009 he recorded 13 tackles and four passes defensed with the Locos during the regular season and added two tackles in their 2009 UFL championship game victory over Florida. He also played in the Arena Football League with the Spokane Shock in 2006, the Kansas City Brigade in 2007 and the Arizona Rattlers from 2007-09.

Kroul (6'3", 300) played six games with the Jets this season, recording two tackles, before being waived on Tuesday. He originally joined the Jets as an undrafted free agent on May 1, 2009, and spent last season on the practice squad. A 2008 semifinalist for the Draddy Trophy Award while at Iowa, Kroul set a school record by starting 50 consecutive games. He recorded 238 tackles, seven sacks and one interception during his college career.
