The Jets were awarded a pair of players off waivers on Wednesday. They are Quincy Williams and Tim Ward.

As Connor Hughes mentioned, Williams is the brother of Jets star defensive lineman Quinnen Williams. He was a third round pick by Jacksonville in 2019, recording 58 tackles in 18 games over the last two seasons.

Ward was an undrafted free agent signed by Kansas City in 2019. He spent his first year injured and made it into a game in 2020 after spending time on the practice squad.

The Jets are also signing Sheldrick Redwine.

Redwine was also a 2019 draftee. He has started 8 games across two seasons and registered 69 tackles, an interception, and half a sack. He also had an interception in Cleveland’s Playoff victory over Pittsburgh last year. The Jets’ safety room was thin with only Marcus Maye, Lamarcus Joyer, and Ashtyn Davis at the position on the initial 53 man roster.
