The Jets have signed tight end Nick Truesdell and waived cornerback Derrick Jones.
The well-traveled Truesdell, who played collegiately at Cincinnati and also attended Grand Rapids Community College, first signed with the Jets Aug. 4 before he was released two days after. He had a couple of stints in the Indoor Football League (IFL) and multiple stops in the Arena Football League (AFL) and had brief stays with the Colts and the Vikings and most recently played with the Salt Lake Stallions in the Alliance for American Football. The 6’5”, 246-pounder combined to catch 127 balls for 1,527 yards with 38 touchdowns in the AFL.
Jones, a Jets 2017 sixth-round pick, played four games for the Green & White in 2017-18. The Mississippi product played both receiver and cornerback for the Rebels, and totaled 54 tackles and two interceptions in four seasons.
