The New York Jets have re-signed running back Pete Guerriero and waived linebacker B.J. Bello and defensive lineman Sterling Johnson.
Pete Guerriero, a 5’ 10”, 190 pound running back with 4.47 speed, re-joins the Jets roster after being released on Aug. 27. He signed with the Jets on Aug. 25 as an UDFA out of Monmouth University. While at Monmouth, Guerriero he led the FCS with 1,995 rushing yards, was tied for sixth with 18 rushing touchdowns, and was eighth in yards per carry at 6.69.
With the Jets running back group hobbled by injuries, Guerriero projects to be a healthy camp body for a few days, with the possibility of earning a practice squad berth if he shows something on special teams. The start of the regular season is now just a week and a half away, and fringe players like this just don’t have the time left to have much chance of earning a spot on the 53 man roster, unless the Jets just don’t have enough healthy bodies.
