New York Jets Add Ricky Sapp to Active Roster

If you thought the Jets waived Eron Riley to make move for Braylon Edwards, you are in for some disappointment. The team filled its open roster spot today with DE/OLB Ricky Sapp, signed off the practice squad.

Sapp, a fifth-round pick of the Eagles in the 2010 draft, has never played in an NFL game.

Sapp missed all of 2010 with a knee injury. He played his college ball in the ACC at Clemson and had some admirers in the lead up to the 2010 Draft. The pass rush has been anemic virtually all year but especially in recent weeks. It is unclear how much time Sapp will get Sunday, but the Jets might at least give him a chance to make an impact on passing downs.

Riley was re-signed to the practice squad today. In effect, the team just flipped Sapp and him between the active roster and the practice squad.
