Adams (6-2, 225) was elevated from the practice squad for the first two games of the season and scored a touchdown in Week 1 against the Bills. He originally joined the Jets' practice squad on Sept. 1, 2019 after spending the 2018 campaign with the Eagles. Adams, who was undrafted out of Notre Dame in 2018, appeared in three games for the Jets last season. He was a final cut this year and was added to the practice squad one day later. For his career, Adams has 131 rushes for 531 yards (4.1 avg) and 4 touchdowns in 19 games (5 starts). He also has 9 catches for 72 yards.

Travis (6-6, 248), a former Penn State basketball player, spent training camp with the Jets after the team claimed him last December. He was elevated to the active roster for the Week 9 game against the Patriots. He signed with the Chiefs practice squad in 2015 as an undrafted free agent and spent two seasons on and off Kansas City's roster. Travis signed with the Colts in 2017 and was waived last December. He has 14 receptions for 142 yards in 24 games (7 starts).
