Jets Elevate WR Lawrence Cager, OL Jimmy Murray from Practice Squad

Cager Signed As an Undrafted Free Agent Out of Georgia


The Jets have elevated WR Lawrence Cager and OL Jimmy Murray to the active roster from the practice squad for Sunday's Week 3 game against the Colts.

Cager (6'5, 220) originally signed as an undrafted free agent May 6. He came on strong towards the end of training camp but was cut before signing to the Jets' practice squad the next day. He had 476 yards and 4 TDs on 33 receptions last season at Georgia as a graduate transfer. Cager began his collegiate career at Miami and played as a freshman in '15, lost '16 to an ACL injury, then had 16 catches for 237 yards and 3 TDs in '17 and 21-374-6 in '18.

Murray (6-5, 305) signed a reserve/future deal with the Jets Dec. 30 and spent training camp with the Green & White before he was cut and signed to the practice squad. He originally signed with the Chiefs in 2018 as an undrafted free agent out of Holy Cross, landed on Kansas City's practice squad and was eventually promoted to the active roster where he played in two games. Murray spent time on both the Chiefs' and Jets' P-squad last season.
