Perry’s interesting post-draft NFL journey continues. Initially slated to join the Eagles as a UDFA, he ended up signing with the Jaguars days later. Then, in July, he was waived (with an injury designation) to make room for Sloter’s addition. Perry has obviously recovered, as the two have now swapped placed once more.

Fenton was one of four Chiefs placed on the PUP list at the start of training camp. That came as little surprise at the time, but his return to practice will be a welcomed sight in Kansas City’s secondary. NFL Network’s James Palmer tweets that Fenton’s preseason availability remains a question mark, but that he is still expected to be fully recovered in time for the regular season.

Jackson was a fifth-round pick in this year’s draft at a position which has been in flux throughout the offseason in New Orleans. The 24-year-old had a highly productive final season in particular at Appalachian State, posting 119 tackles, 20 TFLs and six sacks. He will now have to wait until 2023 to carve out a depth role in the middle of the Saints’ defense.

Jets Cut WR Josh Doctson

The Jets are doing some spring cleaning. On Friday, the Jets released six players from their offseason roster, including wide receiver Josh Doctson. Meanwhile, they also welcomed 12 new undrafted free agents. Here’s the full rundown:

Released:

Signed:

Doctson, a former first-round pick of the WFT, joined the Jets in February as a street free agent. In August, he exercised his right to opt out, tolling his one-year pact to 2021. While Doctson did not deliver on Washington’s investment, he did post multiple 500-plus-yard seasons from 2017-18 and profiled as a somewhat interesting candidate to factor into the Jets’ wideout mix last season. Now, he’ll seek employment elsewhere.

Jets Sign 9 UDFAs

The Jets just made 10 draft picks, and now they’ve added nine undrafted rookies. The following players make up New York’s first UDFA class of the Robert Saleh era, via Ralph Vacchiano of SNY (Twitter link).

The Jets clearly had competition for Yeboah. New York gave him a whopping $200K in guaranteed money with a $20K signing bonus and $180K base salary guarantee, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network tweets. Chris Herndon led the Jets’ tight ends with 287 yards in 16 games last year, so it’s not surprising to see them taking flyers like this. Yeboah had 524 yards and six touchdowns in only seven games for Ole Miss in 2020.

The team also gave Dunn $185K guaranteed, Aaron Wilson tweets. Wilson reports it’s the biggest guarantee ever for an undrafted cornerback. They also gave Saltes $93K guaranteed, Wilson tweets.

With only Chase McLaughlin and Sam Ficken on the roster the Jets don’t have a firmly entrenched kicker, so Naggar could have a real shot at winning the job. He’s got a video on Twitter of him hitting a 71-yarder.
