The Jets have claimed DL Jordan Willis, who fills the roster spot for WR Quincy Enunwa, who was placed on injured reserve with a neck injury.

Willis, who was drafted by the Bengals in the third round of the 2017 draft, started 32 games (two starts) in two seasons with Cincinnati and registered 45 tackles and two sacks. The 6’4”, 270-pounder was one of the Bengals’ 11 D-lineman to make their 53-man roster and was inactive for the team’s season opener against the Seahawks before he was waived Sept. 10.

The Kansas State product racked up 113 tackles, 25.5 sacks and six forced fumbles in 38 games for the Wildcats and earned Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year honors in 2016.
