Jets Sign OT Austin Howard to 53-man Roster

The Jets have signed OT Austin Howard to the 53-man roster. Howard comes from the Ravens practice squad, and as such, is required to be signed to the active roster for a minimum of four games. Howard is a second year player out of Northern Iowa and was initially signed by the Eagles. He is 6'7" and 333 pounds. He appears to be extremely coachable, as he willingly lost 15 pounds to fit into Howard Mudd's system in Philadelphia before being cut during the final round.

I'm happy to see the FO addressing the weak depth, even if it is a bit late in the season. Our line could use all the help it can get right now.
