Another day another new batch of bad Jets news. The hits really keep on coming, this time it is Trumaine Johnson being placed on IR. Josh Bellamy was also placed on IR. The Jets have signed RB Josh Adams and LB Paul Worrilow to the active roster to take their spots. More on the new players below.
You have to wonder if Trumaine Johnson has played his last game in a Jets uniform. His cap number is big next year and there is a lot of dead money. He was benched this year before getting hurt and the team is going to think long and hard about just moving on from one from what is possibly Mike Mike Maccagnan’s worst free agent contract.
We've signed RB Josh Adams and LB Paul Worrilow to the active roster.

Adams joined the Jets’ practice squad Sept. 1 after spending the 2018 campaign with the Eagles. The second-year back, a Notre Dame product who went undrafted, led Philadelphia with 511 rushing yards last season and scored three touchdowns in 14 games (five starts). The 6’2”, 225-pounder also recorded seven receptions for 58 yards.
Worrilow last signed with the Ravens in August but requested to be released the following day as he contemplated his NFL future. The 29-year-old first signed with the Falcons as an undrafted free agent out of Delaware in 2013 and spent four seasons with Atlanta before joining the Lions in 2017. The 6’0”, 230-pounder signed with the Eagles the following year but tore his ACL on the first day of OTAs and was placed on injured reserve. In 72 career games (52 starts), Worrilow has collected 415 tackles, four sacks 11 pass defenses and two interceptions.
