FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — The New York Jets have signed linebacker Josh Mauga from the practice squad and waived defensive tackle Howard Green.

The Jets also signed linebacker Kenwin Cummings to the practice squad Tuesday, four days after they waived him.

Mauga was signed to the practice squad on Sept. 6 after being waived two days earlier. He originally signed with the Jets as an undrafted free agent in August 2009.

Green had a forced fumble in two games with the Jets this season. He also spent last season with New York, but has previously played with Houston, Baltimore, New Orleans and Seattle.

Cummings, signed as an undrafted free agent in 2008, played on special teams in three games this season before being waived on Friday.
