Jets Acquire WR KD Cannon on Waivers

He Set Baylor Records as Freshman Catching Passes from Bryce Petty; Deshon Foxx Is Waived


The Jets have acquired wide receiver KD Cannon on waivers from the San Francisco 49ers and have waived WR Deshon Foxx.

Cannon (5'11", 182) was signed by San Francisco as an undrafted free agent last week and was waived on Sunday.

Cannon had his best season with Baylor as a true junior last year when he caught 87 passes for 1,215 yards and 13 touchdowns, all career highs, and was named All-Big 12 first team.

As a freshman, he set six Baylor records as he caught 58 passes for 1,030 yards and eight touchdowns, most of them from current Jets quarterback Bryce Petty in his last year running the Bears' offense.

In his three seasons at Baylor, Cannon had 195 receptions for 3,113 yards (16.0 yards/catch) and 27 TDs and was named All-Big 12 three times.

He ran a 4.41-second 40 at the NFL Combine workouts, the fourth-best time among wide receivers and tied for the 11th-best time among all Combine participants.

Foxx was signed by the Jets in January to a reserve/future contract after spending time on the Seattle Seahawks' offseason and practice-squad rosters in 2015-16.
