May 9, 9:20pm: The Jets added another UDFA following their rookie tryouts this weekend, signing wide receiver Calvin Jackson Jr. out of Washington State.
May 6, 4:30pm: The Jets announced a thin UDFA class Friday. Here are the initial undrafted talents Joe Douglas‘ team is bringing in:
Thomas will collect $130K guaranteed, according to NFL.com’s Tom Pelissero (on Twitter). Playing five seasons with the mid-major program, Thomas showed versatility by delivering quality production as a tackler and a pass rusher. The 216-pound hybrid player put together two 70-plus-tackle/five-plus-sack seasons (2018 and 2021) and finished his college career with 53 tackles for loss. Although undersized, Thomas will head to the Jets with one of the more interesting athletic profiles of this year’s UDFA crop.
The Jets gave Adams a $110K guarantee, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com tweets. Adams was the first Illinois true freshman to start a season opener since Vontae Davis in 2006. The Lovie Smith-led staff converted him from cornerback to safety. Charles’ college career dates back to 2015, when he went to Penn State as a four-star recruit. At Division II Indiana (Pa.) last season, Charles caught 39 passes for 792 yards and 12 touchdowns. Knight is the only player in Wolfpack history to return three kickoffs for touchdowns, finishing as a first-team All-ACC returner last season.
