Now that the bye week is here, it’s a good time to assess how former Jets have been performing with their new teams. We start today with former Jets who are now on other AFC teams.

As ever, this list is intended to be exhaustive, but if we missed anyone, let us know in the comments.

Bills:

There’s no change on the Bills, who don’t have any ex-Jets on their roster. Practice squad members defensive lineman Brandin Bryant and quarterback Davis Webb have not been active yet.

Dolphins:

Versatile veteran Jesse Davis has started three games at right tackle and the other two at left guard for Miami, but has given up two sacks and a penalty.

Defensive back Elijah Campbell has been active for two games, primarily as a special teamer, recording one tackle, and Milo Eifler has been on the practice squad but not activated yet.

Patriots:

Despite starting off the year on the practice squad, Nick Folk has kicked in every game for the Patriots this year and only missed two kicks. One cost them the game against Tampa Bay though as he hit the upright from 56 yards with less than a minute to go in a 19-17 loss. That ended a string of 36 consecutive made field goals.

Defensive lineman Henry Anderson had just three tackles in four games in a rotational role and then suffered a season-ending pectoral injury. Linebacker Harvey Langi has just one tackle as he’s mostly just been used on special teams. Tight end Matt LaCosse has yet to be activated from the practice squad.

Steelers:

Running back Kalen Ballage had only played on special teams until Sunday when he got his first carries of the year and ended up with zero yards on four carries.

On defense, Arthur Maulet started the last game and has done quite well so far with 11 tackles, three tackles for loss and a pass defensed.

Browns:

Chase McLaughlin is still the Browns’ kicker and has made all 22 of his kicks so far, including nine field goals, three of which were from beyond 50 yards.

Blake Hance made a couple of reserve appearances before starting in week five and performing well at left tackle.

The Browns now have five ex-Jets on their practice squad: Tristen Hoge, Lawrence Cager, Jojo Natson, Chris Naggar and David Moore. None have been active yet this year.

Connor Davis and Montrel Meander remain on injured reserve.

Bengals:

Edge rusher Wyatt Ray has been getting about 10 snaps each week in a reserve role. He has five tackles and two pressures.

Ravens:

Tight end Eric Tomlinson remains on the roster at tight end, although he’s yet to be targeted so he’s mostly there just as a blocker.

The Ravens also have Le’Veon Bell on their practice squad and he was activated once, rushing for 11 yards on four carries. They also had Trenton Cannon, but he’s since been released. Cannon rushed for five yards on two carries and had a special teams tackle in his lone appearance with the Ravens.

Titans:

Sam Ficken won the Titans’ kicker job but then got injured and his replacement was another former Jet; Randy Bullock. Bullock’s miss preserved the Jets’ overtime win in week four and he’s missed two other kicks.

Tight end Anthony Firkser has missed a couple of games but caught nine passes in three games so far this year.

At safety, Bradley McDougald started in week two but was then released. He ended up with three tackles in two games. Matthias Farley is still with the team but mostly just playing special teams. Farley has two tackles and also completed a pass on a fake punt.

Sharif Finch was active for the Jets game in week four but played just five defensive snaps and was then released. Offensive lineman Corey Levin saw his first action in week five but just played on special teams.

BJ Bello and Trevon Coley remain on injured reserve and the Titans recently signed offensive lineman Jimmy Murray to their practice squad.

Colts:

The Colts added veteran safety Andrew Sendejo - who was in camp with the Jets as a rookie - right before the season. He has started the last two games and, in total, registered eight tackles, a tackle for loss and a pass break-up in four games.

Ibraheim Campbell is on the practice squad injured list.

Texans:

Edge defender Jordan Jenkins, safety Terrance Brooks and linebacker Neville Hewitt have each been contributing modestly in a reserve role. Jenkins has six tackles, a tackle for loss and a quarterback hit while Hewitt and Brooks have four tackles each.

Andre Roberts hasn’t made much of an impact yet as the team’s return specialist but did catch a 35-yard pass on offense.

Linebacker Kevin Pierre-Louis hasn’t played yet this year as he’s on injured reserve with a hamstring injury.

Shyheim Carter remains on the practice squad but hasn’t played yet.

Jaguars:

Jacksonville don’t have any ex-Jets on their team at the moment. They did have wide receiver Devin Smith and kicker/punter Kaare Vedvik on the practice squad but both have since been released and Vedvik is now in the CFL.

Chiefs:

The Chiefs didn’t have any ex-Jets on their team either, but have just added former sixth round pick Elijah McGuire to their practice squad.

Raiders:

The Raiders didn’t have any ex-Jets either, but have recently added Patrick Onwuasor to their practice squad.

Chargers:

Oday Aboushi started the first five games at right guard but then sadly tore his ACL early on in week five so he is done for the year. He had been playing quite well too, although he had two penalties in the first two games.

Defensive back Tevaughn Campbell only played three snaps in the first two games but then started in week three and had a huge impact as he broke up two passes and forced two fumbles, earning a rotational role for the last two games. He has 10 tackles on the year.

Broncos:

Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater got off to a great start with a quarterback rating of over 100 in each of the first three games, including the shutout win over the Jets. Unfortunately he was then knocked out of the Ravens game with a concussion and although he returned in week five and played well, Denver lost and dropped to 3-2.

Defensive lineman Shelby Harris has started all five games and been excellent against the run. He has 17 tackles, four tackles for loss, three quarterback hits and a sack.

Offensive lineman Calvin Anderson has been active for all five games but has only played on special teams.

Cornerback Nate Hairston started the season on the practice squad but is now on the active roster. He’s barely played on defense but did break up a pass against the Jets.

The Broncos recently added former Jets linebacker Avery Williamson to their practice squad.
