They also re-signed wide receiver/kick returner Kalif Raymond to the practice squad three days after he was waived following his momentum-turning muffed punt in Sunday’s 45-20 loss at Oakland. Raymond muffed three punts in two games.

Bass was released by Seattle on Tuesday. He was a seventh-round pick in 2013 by Oakland out of Missouri Western State. He has 5½ sacks in his NFL career, which also includes stints with Chicago and Tennessee. Bass has two interceptions, one that he returned for a score, two forced fumbles, a fumble recovery and 77 tackles.

Bishop has split time between the Jets’ practice squad and active roster the past two seasons.
