Jets claim 4 off waivers; cut Robinson, McDougle
NEW YORK (AP) The New York Jets have claimed four players off waivers, including tight ends Braedon Bowman from Jacksonville and Brian Parker from Kansas City.
A day after setting its initial 53-man roster, New York also was awarded running back Troymaine Pope from Seattle and cornerback Darryl Roberts from New England on Sunday.
To make room, the Jets waived/injured running back Khiry Robinson, who was hurt in the preseason finale last Thursday at Philadelphia. They also waived cornerback Dexter McDougle, a third-round draft pick in 2014; safety Ronald Martin; and running back Dominique Williams.
New York also filled seven of its 10 practice squad spots, signing linebackers Freddie Bishop and Victor Oshi; cornerback Bryson Keeton; safety Doug Middleton; defensive lineman Claude Pelon; guard Craig Watts; and wide receiver Myles White.
