NEW YORK (AP) — The Jets have waived linebacker Aaron Maybin, a day after the former Buffalo bust made New York’s initial 53-player roster, and claimed backup quarterback Kevin O’Connell off waivers from Miami.
The Jets also claimed wide receiver Mardy Gilyard from St. Louis, offensive lineman Colin Baxter from San Diego and safety Andrew Sendejo from Dallas on Sunday. In addition to Maybin, New York has waived defensive tackle Martin Tevaseu and defensive back Isaiah Trufant.
Rookie quarterback Greg McElroy was placed on season-ending injured reserve after he dislocated his right thumb in the preseason finale.
The Jets also have signed seven players to the practice squad: tight end Josh Baker, linebacker Matthias Berning, defensive tackle Jarron Gilbert, cornerback Julian Posey, wide receiver Patrick Turner and guards Trevor Canfield and Matt Kroul.
