Jets Place TE Tomlinson on IR, Bring Back TE Walford

Former Raiders Round 3 Pick Led Green & White in Preseason Receiving Yards


The Jets have placed tight end Eric Tomlinson on Injured Reserve and have signed TE Clive Walford, who among their leading pass catchers this past preseason.

Tomlinson, in his third season with the Jets, played in all 15 games this season with 12 starts. He was in for 353 plays on offense and 224 on special teams and threw one of the number of key blocks on Andre Roberts' kickoff-return touchdown against Green Bay. Tomlinson had eight receptions for 72 yards. For his career, he's played in 36 games (29 starts) with 16 catches for 193 yards and one TD catch last season.

Walford (6'4", 258) was Oakland's third-round pick in 2015 and played his first three seasons for the Raiders. He was acquired by the Jets on waivers from Oakland in April, played in all four Jets preseason games, and led the team with seven receptions (tied with rookie RB Trenton Cannon) and 92 yards. He was waived on Sept. 1.

Walford was signed by Indianapolis last month and spent nine days with the Colts before being waived Dec. 7.
