The New York Jets have signed wide receiver/returner Greg Dortch to the practice squad.

The 5’ 9”, 170 pound Dortch, an undrafted free agent out of Wake Forest University, became something of a fan favorite this summer as he exhibited some burst and wiggle returning punts. The Jets cut Dortch yesterday after they claimed Braxton Berrios, a very similar player who is expected to take on Dortch’s punt returner/backup slot receiver role, off of waivers.

The addition of Dortch leaves just one slot open on the practice squad. As of now the Jets practice squad consists of the following players:

Josh Adams (RB)

Calvin Anderson (OL)

Ben Braden (OL)

Kyron Brown (CB)

Ian Bunting (TE)

Greg Dortch (WR/PR)

Luke Falk (QB)

Valentine Holmes (RB)*

Jamey Mosley (LB)

Jeff Smith (WR)
