Jets add Undrafted Receiver Johathon Rumph

By Glenn Naughton


The Jets today announced the signing of undrafted rookie free agent wide receiver Jonathon Rumph who will fill the roster spot vacated by the recently released Matt Simms.

Rumph, a South Carolina native who transferred to the University of Georgia following two seasons at  the JUCO level with Holmes Community College, had a difficult time staying on the field due to recurring hamstring injuries.

Despite his durability concerns, Rumph’s physical attributes make him worth a look as a camp body at the very least.

Checking in 6′ 5”/220 lbs, he’s a big target who is unlikely to be any more than practice squad material at this point.

With Rumph, clearly the Jets hope to have found a player who was overlooked as he played just nine games over the course of his final two college seasons racking up 18 receptions for 297 yds and a touchdown.
