Practice Squad Additions
Gamble originally signed with the Jets as an undrafted free agent following the 2017 Draft. The Georgia Tech product made 27 starts for the Yellow Jackets and played both DE and DT. His 7.5 sacks and 10.5 tackles for loss paced Georgia Tech last season and earned him honorable mention All-ACC recognition.

Gray spent training camp with the Packers after he signed with Green Bay in April as an undrafted free agent out of the University of Manitoba. The 6'5", 315-pounder didn't miss a game in four years for the Bisons and was the fifth player from a Canadian university to be invited to participate in the East-West Shrine Game. Gray was also drafted No. 8 overall in the CFL Draft by the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

Natson spent the summer in Indianapolis and amassed 13 catches for 180 yards with a long of 51 yards. The Akron product also returned punts and kicks as he averaged 7 yards and 22 yards per punt and kick return in the preseason, respectively. The 5'7", 153-pounder was a team captain in 2016 and earned first-team All-MAC honors as a returner and receiver.

On the offensive side of the ball throughout his collegiate career at Northern Iowa, the 6'1", 195-pound Sinkfield has split time between the NFL and CFL and was most recently a member of the Minnesota Vikings.
