The Jets made some alterations to their practice squad today, signing OLB Victor Ochi and WR Wendall Williams and terminating the contracts of RB Raheem Mostert and WR Myles White.
Ochi, a Valley Stream, NY native who established a school record with 32.5 sacks and added 49 tackles for loss at Stony Brook, originally signed with the Baltimore Ravens as an undrafted free agent. During preseason action with the Ravens, Ochi racked up two sacks.
Williams, a receiver, rusher and return man for the University of the Cumberlands, posted a 4.32 in the 40-yard dash and a vertical jump of 45.0 inches at the NFL regional combine in Winter Park, MN. The 5’10”, 185-pounder scored 15 touchdowns last season including four on special teams.
The Jets signed White (6'0", 190) to their practice squad after the Giants waived him last month and he cleared waivers. White came out of Louisiana Tech to sign with Green Bay as an undrafted free agent in 2013.
Mostert, a top kickoff returner for four seasons at Purdue, entered the NFL with the Eagles as an undrafted free agent after the 2015 draft. He was acquired by three different teams on waivers that season — Miami, Baltimore and Cleveland and was with the Browns this year, rushing seven times for 47 yards, catching one pass for 7 yards, and returning two punts and four kickoffs in the preseason.
