The Jets have signed four more free agents to reserve/future contracts, including offensive lineman Lawrence Okoye, the British discus record holder who was with the Green & White the last two months of the season, and former Giants drafted tight end Adrien Robinson.

Here are capsules on the four signees:

OL Lawrence Okoye (6'6", 304), no college — Okoye, who played junior rugby union and threw the discus in Great Britain, entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent defensive lineman with San Francisco after the 2013 draft. He spent '13 on injured reserve and '14 on the 49ers' practice squad before being released last August. He was on the Cardinals' practice squad for another six weeks, was released, then was signed Nov. 13 as an offensive lineman to the Jets' practice squad.

T Jesse Davis (6'6", 309), Idaho — Davis began his NFL career as an undrafted free agent out of Idaho with Seattle last year. He was waived by the Seahawks last August and didn't re-sign with any team during the year.

TE Adrien Robinson (6'4", 264), Cincinnati — Robinson was selected in the fourth round (127th overall) of the 2012 NFL Draft by the Giants. He played in 19 games with one start from 2012-14 and totaled five catches for 50 yards and one touchdown. Robinson was a final cut by the Giants last year and didn't re-sign with any team during the season.

G Craig Watts (6'3", 344), West Texas A&M — Watts was signed as an undrafted free agent by San Diego after the 2014 draft. Since then he was involved in 10 transactions, all with the Chargers, usually involving the practice squad. He was active for one game in those two seasons, the Bears-Chargers Monday night game this past Nov. 9, but didn't play, was waived the next day, then re-signed to San Diego's practice squad two days later.
