Jets Make Pair of Roster Moves on Defense; add DB and Linebacker

Tinkering with his roster as the preseason winds down, Jets GM Joe Douglas has made a pair of moves to add some familiar faces for his head coach and defensive coordinator.

Former Saints first-round pick Stephone Anthony, an apparent favorite of Adam Gase, was signed to add special teams depth.  Anthony started 16 games as a rookie with the Saints and amassed 112 tackles, 2 forced fumbles and an interception.  Since that time, he has started only two games while primarily playing special teams.  Santos Ramirez was let go to make room for Anthony.

In the secondary, the Jets parted ways with Montrel Meander and added former Gregg Williams pupil Derrick Kindred, a safety/cornerback who was chosen in round four of the 2016 NFL draft.  

In three pro seasons, Kindred has appeared in 42 games (17 starts), picking up 144 tackles, 12 passes defended and 2 interceptions.
