The Jets have re-signed linebacker Albert McClellan and placed offensive lineman Brent Qvale on injured reserve.
McClellan, who was released by the Jets Sunday, first joined the team Aug. 17 when LB Avery Williamson was placed on IR. The 6’2”, 250-pound Marshall product spent most of his eight-year career with the Ravens after signing with Baltimore as an undrafted free agent in 2010. McClellan, who has primarily been a special-teams contributor and backup, has played in 103 regular-season games (24 starts) and has notched 153 tackles, three sacks, two forced fumbles and five fumble recoveries.
Qvale, who hurt his knee in training camp, has played 60 games for the Jets throughout his career and started in 14. The 6’7”, 315-pounder started two games for the Green & White in 2018.
The Green & White have also added RB Josh Adams, TE Ian Bunting and WR Greg Dortch to their practice squad, which leaves one vacant spot on the P-squad.
A 2018 undrafted free agent, Adams spent last season with the Eagles. The Notre Dame product began the year on Philadelphia’s practice squad and eventually led the team with 511 rushing yards on 120 carries (4.3 avg) and added three touchdowns. The 6’2”, 225-pounder ran for 3,201 yards and 20 touchdowns on 480 carries in three years with the Fighting Irish.
Bunting signed with the Bears as an undrafted free agent in May. The 6’7”, 255-pounder tallied three receptions for 32 yards in the preseason after three seasons at Michigan and one at Cal. For his career, the 23-year-old recorded 29 catches for 319 yards and no touchdowns.
Dortch, who originally signed with the Jets as an undrafted free agent in May, was waived by the team Sunday. The 5'7", 173-pounder recorded eight receptions for 49 yards and one touchdown in the preseason while adding nine punt returns for 85 yards. The Wake Forest product started 20 games for the Demon Deacons in two seasons and totaled 1,800 yards and 12 touchdowns on 142 receptions.
