Jets Sign DE Courtney Upshaw; Release Chris Jones

Following their three-day minicamp, the New York Jets signed one of their seven tryout players in former Ravens defensive lineman/linebacker Courtney Upshaw.

A former second-round pick out of Alabama, Upshaw has played in 90 pro games (56 starts), racking up 215 tackles, 7 sacks and 5 forced fumbles as a member of both the Ravens and Atlanta Falcons.

To make room for Upshaw, the Jets parted ways with recently signed lineman Chris Jones.
