New York Jets Add Andrew Sendejo

The Jets have acquired safety Andrew Sendejo off waivers from the Dallas Cowboys. He is a Rice product who spent time in the UFL before going to Dallas.

I view him as a replacement for Dwight Lowery in that he seems to have a knack for making big plays. He is more of a strong safety than a free safety, though. He led the UFL with 48 tackles during his time there in 2010. He also picked off a pair of passes and had seven defenses, two fumble recoveries, and two tackles for a loss. He registered 318 tackles at Rice.

It is tough to expect much from bottom of the roster acquisitions, but he seems like a decent developmental guy. Unfortunately for him, the Jets have a lot of safeties stout against the run. This might limit his playing time. If he can show consistent signs in coverage, he might get a look in subpackages because that is the area Jets safeties are currently weak.

It is also entirely possible the Jets are just going to pump him for information on the Cowboys.
