The New York Jets have signed linebacker Alec Ogletree and wide receiver Jaleel Scott to the practice squad, and moved wide receiver Donte Moncrief to the practice squad injured reserve list.
Ogletree is a soon to be (September 25) 29 year old, 6’ 2”, 235 pound linebacker originally drafted by the Rams in the first round of the 2013 NFL draft. Ogletree spent the first five years of his career with the Rams, where he had the best year of his career in 2016, with 136 tackles, 9 tackles for loss, and 11 passes defended. The New York Giants traded for Ogletree in 2018, sending their 2018 4th and 6th round picks to the Rams. The 4th round pick turned out to be John Franklin-Myers, who also is now with the Jets. After spending years with the Giants, Ogletree was cut in February 2020. For his career Ogletree has 676 tackles, 41 tackles for loss, 7.5 sacks, 57 passes defended, 12 interceptions and 4 touchdowns.
Jaleel Scott is a 25 year old, 6’ 5”, 220 pound wide receiver originally drafted by the Baltimore Ravens in the 4th round of the 2018 NFL draft. He is not a burner, with 4.56 speed, nor does he have great lateral quickness. What Scott brings to the table is great size and the ability to catch the ball in traffic. He was cut by the Ravens this past week when he was unable to find a spot in Baltimore’s crowded receiver room. Scott has almost no NFL experience, having played a total of 17 offensive snaps and two special teams snaps in his career. He has one catch for six yards in the NFL.
