Jets sign former Vikings, Panthers TE Bucky Hodges
The team announced the move Tuesday – a day after New York claimed tight end Clive Walford off waivers from Oakland.
Hodges was a sixth-round draft pick of Minnesota last year out of Virginia Tech, where he had 133 catches for 1,747 yards and 20 touchdowns in three seasons.
The 6-foot-6, 257-pound Hodges was waived-injured last September after suffering a concussion in the Vikings’ preseason finale. Hodges was signed to Carolina’s practice squad and released last October.
