Jets Sign Pair of Tryout Players

Green & White Make Four O-Line Transactions


The Jets have signed two tryout players from this weekend's rookie minicamp, OL Benjamin Braden and OL Chris Bordelon, and released LS Zach Triner and T Donald Hawkins.

Bordelon (6'6", 315) was an All-Southland Conference honorable mention in 2014 after starting all 12 games at LT at Nicholls State. He sat out the 2015 season and received a redshirt, thus being eligible to play last year.

Braden (6'6", 335) started two years for Michigan, appearing in 38 games along the offensive line (36 starts). The fifth-year senior was named All-Big Ten second team in 2016 and was a 2015 All-Big Ten honorable mention after starting 25 consecutive games.

Triner signed a reserve/future contract with the Jets on Jan. 5 following a workout for a handful of NFL teams. Hawkins joined the Green & White's practice squad last season on Nov. 30 after spending the beginning portion of the season with the Panthers.
