NY Jets Practice Squad Moves Announced
The NY Jets Practice Squad changed slightly as the team announced some roster moves yesterday. They have signed WR Malik Taylor to the practice squad and waived LB Caleb Johnson (also from the practice squad).
Taylor (6-1, 220) first signed to the Jets practice squad on Dec. 29 last season before he was signed a reserve/future deal in January. He battled injury in the preseason, but had a 56-yard reception against the Browns in the Hall of Fame game. Taylor played in 25 games for the Packers from 2020-21 and had 7 receptions, 80 yards and 1 touchdown. He originally signed with the Buccaneers as an undrafted free agent out of Ferris State, but spent five days with Tampa Bay before joining Green Bay.
Johnson (6-0, 235) signed with the Jets as an undrafted free agent in May out of Miami. He had 11 tackles and 2 special teams tackles in the preseason before he was waived and re-signed to the P-squad. Johnson began his collegiate career with Texas (one season in 2019), then moved to UCLA (he is a native of Murrieta, CA) before entering the transfer portal and landing with the Hurricanes for the 2022 season.
