Jets Claim DB Therezie, Waive FB Brown

Auburn Product Played for Falcons in 2015-16, Was in Saints Camp Before Coming to Green & White


The day after the Jets' 7-3 preseason-opening victory over Tennessee, the team has acquired defensive back Robenson Therezie off waivers and waived fullback Algernon Brown.

Therezie (5'9", 212) was signed as an undrafted free agent out of Auburn by Atlanta after the 2015 draft. He played in 25 games (two starts) for the Falcons in 2015-16 with one interception, two pass defenses and 32 tackles, plus four more special teams tackles.

He was waived by Atlanta last December and acquired on waivers by New Orleans. He was waived by the Saints on Saturday after participating in 24 plays (11 at safety, 13 on ST) in the Saints' 20-14 loss at Cleveland on Thursday.

Brown (6'0", 235) was waived by the Seahawks and signed by the Jets on Aug. 5. He participated in eight offensive plays and two special teams plays in the win over the Titans.
