The New York Jets have signed defensive tackle Martin Tevaseu to the practice squad. The announcement was made by general manager Mike Tannenbaum.
Tevaseu (6'2", 325) was waived Tuesday after making his regular-season debut against Miami on Monday night. He spent the first five weeks of the season on the Jets practice squad. He initially entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Cleveland Browns last season before joining the Jets as a free agent July 20, 2010, and appearing in all four preseason games.
After he was waived by the Jets, he was signed to the practice squad on Sept. 6, 2010, where he spent all 16 regular-season and the first two postseason games before being signed to the active roster Jan. 22 and making his NFL debut at Pittsburgh in the AFC Championship Game.
