The New York Jets have claimed G Mike Fladell off waivers from the New York Giants. The announcement was made by Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum.
Fladell, a 6'7", 334-pounder who attended Rutgers University, entered the NFL when he was signed to the Giants practice squad on Dec. 3, 2008, as an undrafted rookie free agent. The Howard Beach, N.Y., native was subsequently waived on June 24.
Fladell played left guard for the Scarlet Knights from 2003-07, starting his last two seasons.
