Jets Sign TE Bowman to Practice Squad

Green & White Make a Pair of Practice Squads Moves


The Jets signed TE Braedon Bowman to their practice squad today and terminated the contract of DL Claude Pelon.*

*The 6'4", 240-pound Bowman, who was acquired off waivers from Jacksonville on Sep. 4, originally signed with the Jaguars as an undrafted free agent in May. He turned in a 66-catch, 1,030-yard, 13-TD season in his last year at Scottsdale CC before moving to South Alabama, where he had 29 catches for 381 yards in 2014 and '15 combined. Bowman was inactive for the Jets in Week 1 and then released on Sep. 13.

Pelon (6'4", 300), a JUCO All-American at Mesa (AZ) before transferring to USC, signed with the Jets after going undrafted. He participated in 98 defensive snaps in the preseason and was signed to the practice squad on Sep. 4.
