Jets Waive DL Claude Pelon

First-Year Player from Southern Cal Played 17 Defensive Snaps & Notched 2 Tackles at Buffalo


The Jets have waived defensive lineman Claude Pelon.

Pelon had been with the Green & White since he signed as an undrafted free agent out of Southern California following the 2016 NFL Draft. The 6'4", 300-pounder had two stints on the practice squad last season and signed a reserve future contract on Jan. 2 of this year.

Pelon participated in 126 defensive snaps and had a half-sack this preseason. In the season opener at Buffalo, the first-year player was in for 17 defensive plays and had two tackles.
