Hodges returns to the Jets for his second stint in green and white after spending three months last summer with the team. The first-year player spent last season on the Steelers’ practice squad and signed a reserve/future contract with Pittsburgh in January. He was waived in April.
Originally the Vikings’ sixth-round draft pick in 2017, the 6’6”, 257-pound Hodges recorded 133 receptions for 1,747 yards and 20 touchdowns in four years at Virginia Tech.
