The Jets have signed undrafted rookie free agent running back Terry Williams and have waived/injured defensive back Kendall James.

Williams (5’8″, 191), who wore uniform No. 1 and was nicknamed “T Max” at Kutztown University, comes to the Jets after getting an invitation to the Giants’ rookie minicamp in May. He ran a 4.42-second 40-yard dash at his pro day in March. He’s wearing No. 36 in green and white.

He was a two-time All-Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference second-teamer. As a senior he ran for 817 yards on 118 carries for 6.9 yards/carry and scored 14 total touchdowns and 13 rush TDs — fourth-most in a season in KU history and two ahead of the then-school-record 11 by Jets-star-to-be Bruce Harper in 1976.

Last Oct. 24 Williams set the school record for longest run from scrimmage with a 98-yard touchdown burst against East Stroudsburg. He finished his Golden Bears career with 1,501 rush yards and 22 TDs

James came to the Jets in January after entering the NFL as the Vikings’ sixth-round pick in 2014 and spending time also with the Texans, Chargers, Browns and Lions. He was placed on the Jets’ Active/Physically Unable to Perform list to start training camp.

I started JetNation in 2005 and have been a New York Jets season ticket holder since graduating from high school. My dream is to see the New York Jets win the Super Bowl. Until then, I will be right here on JetNation writing, dreaming and talking NY Jets football.
