Bryan Thomas And Patrick Turner Are Back

New York Jets

The carousel with the Jets roster continues, this time Bryan Thomas and Patrick Turner have been signed once again.  WR Stephen Hill has a pulled hamstring so bringing Turner back makes a lot of sense.  Especially when you factor in how the Jets offense struggled yesterday. Here is the official announcement from the Jets, along with some additional roster moves:

The New York Jets have signed LB Bryan Thomas and WR Patrick Turner and waived DT Marcus Dixon, DB Donnie Fletcher and T Dennis Landolt. The announcements were made by General Manager Mike Tannenbaum.

Thomas (LB/6-4/265/Alabama-Birmingham/Birmingham, AL) originally joined the Jets as a first-round pick in the 2002 NFL Draft. In his career, he has started 94-of-146 games, registering 439 tackles, 31 sacks, seven forced fumbles and six fumble recoveries. He has appeared in 11 playoff games (nine starts), ranking second in franchise history. Thomas was released by the Jets (09/22/12).

Turner (WR/6-5/220/Southern California/Nashville, TN) entered the NFL as a third-round selection by the Miami Dolphins in 2009. He was claimed by the Jets (09/05/10) after being waived by Miami (09/04/10). In two seasons with New York, Turner has played in 20 games and caught 10 passes for 122 yards and one touchdown. He was waived by the Jets (09/11/12).
