The Jets followed up their two running back signings earlier in the day with another active roster transaction this afternoon, acquiring linebacker Arthur Brown on waivers from Jacksonville. To make room on the roster, the team has waived/injured LB Julian Stanford.
Brown (6'0", 241) was a second-round selection of Baltimore in the 2013 draft out of Kansas State in the 2013 NFL Draft. He was a final cut this year, then was picked up on waivers by the Jaguars the next day.
He played in all 12 games with the Jags this season, primarily on special teams, and had three coverage tackles. For his pro career he's played in 46 games (no starts).
Stanford came to the Jets a year ago on their practice squad after previous NFL stops with Jacksonville Detroit and Tampa Bay. He played in nine games for the Green & White this season, with starts at Cleveland and Miami and vs. Los Angeles, making 28 defensive tackles and three more on kick coverage.
