The New York Jets have done some roster shuffling Monday, as they announce that they've claimed former Seattle Seahawks cornerback Phillip Adams and have waived wide receiver Quincy Enunwa to make room.

Pro Football Focus had Adams playing 38 snaps in Seattle's preseason finale against the Raiders, where he allowed two touchdown passes. PFF also ranked Adams at 107 out of 110 corners during the 2013-2014 season.

In addition to acquiring Adams, the Jets have also reportedly claimed Arizona Cardinals receiver Walter Powell, who was just recently released. Powell was taken in the 6th round by Arizona in this year's NFL Draft, after playing for Murray State in four years of college.

Gang Green's final roster move of the day—as of the time of this article—was the announcement that they have re-signed cornerback LaQuan Lewis, who was released as part of the final roster cuts over the weekend, to the practice squad.


In order to make room for Walter Powell, the Jets have released rookie linebacker Jeremiah George. This move comes as a bit of a surprise, after George made it through roster cuts over A.J. Edds.
