Jets Waive TE Richard Owens
The Jets announced two roster moves this afternoon.
The Jets announced they have acquired tight end Kevin Brock on waivers from Carolina, and consequently the team has released TE Richard Owens.
Brock, another Rutgers and New Jersey product — he played with LBs Jamaal Westerman and Brandon Renkart at RU and his hometown is Hackensack-ack-ack-ack-ack — was signed by the Panthers after the 2009 draft. They waived him Sunday and he was awarded to the Jets today.
Brock was listed in predraft reports as 6’5” and 250 and with a 40 time of 4.80. In his junior and senior seasons for the Scarlet Knights, he had 49 receptions for 541 yards (11.0 average) and four TDs.
Owens was signed as a free agent July 14. He had NFL game experience with Minnesota and St. Louis, but his time with the Jets ended with an unspecified injury that had him riding the stationary bike today.
Here is the discussion thread.
