Kaufusi, 27, is a former third-round pick of the Ravens back in 2016. He dealt with injuries in his first two years in Baltimore before they elected to waive him coming out of the preseason a few months ago.
The Jets later signed Kaufusi to their practice squad and called him up soon after. New York re-signed him to their practice squad after cutting him loose.
In 2017, Kaufusi appeared in three games for the Jets and recorded five tackles and no sacks.
