Jets aren’t awarded any players off waivers

In a minor surprise, the Jets were not awarded any players off waivers on Sunday. The waiver moves today were from players who were part of their respective teams roster cutdowns over the weekend.

It isn’t immediately clear whether the Jets placed claims on any players who were awarded to other teams with a higher priority in the process.

Rich Cimini notes a potential reason for the lack of waiver claims not just by the Jets but across the league.

I figured the Jets would be active on the waiver wire with so many parts of the roster in need of an upgrade. I am surprised by the lack of activity even considering the unique circumstances.

That said, it is important to remember the players who are available on the waiver wire. They have been let go by other teams. The Jets were not going to fix their roster through the waiver wire. It merely provides opportunities to improve depth and find developmental players.
