The Jets have acquired quarterback Luke Falk on waivers from the Miami Dolphins.

Falk (6'4", 223) joined the Washington State University football team as a walk-on in 2013. After redshirting a year, he became the starter late in 2014 and went on to start 42 games for the Cougars, completing 68.3% of his passes for 14,481 yards, 119 touchdowns and 39 interceptions. He was the MVP of Wazu's 2015 Sun Bowl win over Miami.

On the strength of his college career, Falk was selected by Tennessee in the sixth round (199th overall) of last year's draft. He played in all four of the Titans' preseason games, completing 32 of 58 passes (55.2%) for 296 yards, one TD and one INT for a 67.9 passer rating and was sacked seven times.

He was a final cut, was then acquired on waivers by then-head coach Adam Gase's Dolphins, and went on Injured Reserve with a wrist injury in October. The Dolphins waived him Wednesday.

With the Jets, Falk joins a QB room that currently includes Sam Darnold, Trevor Siemian, Davis Webb and Brandon Silvers.
