What’s old is new again. A day after cutting cornerback Leon McFadden, the Jets announced that they have welcomed back fellow corner Ellis Lankster, according to Brian Costello of the New York Post (on Twitter).
The Jets cut Lankster on September 1st when they added linebacker A.J. Edds. The 27-year-old Lankster may not have impressed in training camp this summer, but he has appeared in 37 games for the Jets across the last three seasons and has even seen a bit of time at safety. Over the last two seasons, Lankster has recorded 40 tackles, two interceptions, and two forced fumbles.
