The New York Jets have activated 2017 sixth round selection Jeremy Clark from the non- football injury list, and have signed running back Jeremy Langford to the practice squad.
Jeremy Clark is a 23 year old, 6’ 3”, 220 pound defensive back out of the University of Michigan. Clark started six games at safety as a sophomore at Michigan before being moved to cornerback as a junior. As a junior Clark started seven games, recording 21 tackles and three interceptions. In his senior year Clark started three games at cornerback, recording 10 tackles and two passes defended, before his college career ended with an ACL injury. Many did not expect Clark to make it onto the field this year, so Clark’s activation is a pleasant surprise. Clark is huge for a cornerback and is bigger than any safety on the Jets; it’s unclear what position he will play in the NFL.
Jeremy Langford is a 26 year old, 6’ 0”, 211 pound running back out of Michigan State University. Langford was a 4th round selection of the Chicago Bears in the 2015 NFL draft. In two years with the Bears Langford had 210 carries for 737 yards, a 3.5 yards per carry average, and 10 touchdowns. Langford also accumulated 41 receptions for 421 yards, a excellent 10.3 yard average, and one touchdown.
To make room for Clark on the 53 man roster the Jets waived cornerback Robert Nelson. The Jets also placed wide receiver Tre McBride on the Practice Squad/Injured list to make room for Langford.
