Jets Sign Pair of Tryout Players


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.
