The team has four slots left to fill.
Perhaps the reason the Jets still have openings is they had a surprising seven players claimed off waivers by other teams.
The #Jets were not awarded anyone off waivers.— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) August 31, 2022
They had seven players (!!) claimed by other teams:
- OT Chuma Edoga (ATL)
- CB Isiah Dunn (SEA)
- CB Rachad Wildgoose (WFT)
- S Jason Pinnock (NYG)
- CB Javelin Guidry (ARZ)
- LB Del’Shawn Phillips (BAL)
- TE Trevon Wesco (CHI)
Phillips was clearly claimed by the Ravens for special teams purposes and/or gamesmanship prior to the opener between the teams.
I would imagine the Jets were most surprised by Pinnock. By all accounts, they were hoping to get I'm onto the practice squad. Wildgoose is entering his second season and had a strong preseason.
The others are a bit surprising. Maybe Arizona really liked Guidry as a gunner on the punt teams. I guess Dunn might be young enough to turn things around, but the Jets liked him a lot this time last year. He had a rapid fall from grace. Your guess is as good as mine as to why another team might want Edoga or Wesco.
