The Jets have signed wide receiver DeAngelo Yancey to the practice squad.

Originally Green Bay’s fifth-round pick in 2017, Yancey spent his rookie season on the Packers’ practice squad. The 6’1”, 220-pounder signed a reserve/future contract with the team in January and was a final cut before re-signing to the Packers’ practice squad. The first-year pro was waived Oct. 16th. The Purdue product totaled 141 receptions, 2,344 yards and 20 touchdowns in 39 games for the Boilermakers.
