FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — The New York Jets have cleared a roster spot for wide receiver Santonio Holmes, who sat out the team’s first four games for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy.
The Jets had not added Holmes to the 53-man roster as of early Monday afternoon.
They waived wide receivers David Clowney and Patrick Turner to make roster room, and re-signed defensive tackle Howard Green.
Holmes was acquired from Pittsburgh in April and is expected to make his debut with the Jets next Monday night at home against the Minnesota Vikings.
Clowney, who was cut before the season and re-signed after Week 1, had one catch for 22 yards. Turner was active for one game after being signed from the practice squad.
