News: Mays officially signed with the Jets on Monday, NJ.com reports.
Impact: Mays missed the first half of last season with the Chiefs due to a wrist injury, limiting him to just 20 tackles through eight games played. Now with the Jets, he'll be on his fifth team since being drafted in 2008. Furthermore, with New York inking fellow reserve inside linebackers Jamari Lattimore and Erin Henderson recently, Mays is expected to join them in competing for snaps behind starters David Harris and Demario Davis this season.

Impact: Mays has 211 defensive tackles and 29 more on special teams in seven NFL seasons. He played for Kansas City last year, and has also been with Philadelphia, Denver and Houston.

News: Mays was released by the Chiefs on Thursday, ESPN's Adam Teicher reports.
Impact: Mays injured his wrist during the 2014 preseason and subsequently spent the first eight games of the year on IR-designated to return. He was expected to start upon making his return, but that didn't come to fruition until late in the season, and even then Mays wasn't an every-down player. The Chiefs hope to have Derrick Johnson (Achilles) back in 2015, with the other starting inside linebacker spot likely manned by Josh Mauga. Mays has already played for four different teams through six seasons, and his best-case scenario for 2015 is the opportunity to compete for a starting job.
