The Jets have signed free agent long-snapper Josh Latham.
Latham (6'2", 250) was the long-snapper for Sacramento State for three seasons, from 2013-15, while also working two of those seasons at defensive end and one at fullback. The Jets are the first NFL team to sign him, although he reportedly had a tryout with the Seahawks last June and interest from the Packers and Lions and an offer from the Buccaneers before signing with the Jets.
Latham is the second long-snapper to sign with the Green & White this offseason, joining Zach Triner from Assumption, who signed a reserve/future contract last month. Tanner Purdum, the Jets' long-snapper for the past seven seasons, can become an unrestricted free agent in March.
