The New York Jets announced that they’ve have signed veteran RB Khiry Robinson to their active roster on Wednesday and promoted RB Brandon Wilds from their practice squad.
Robinson, 26, wound up signing on with the Saints as an undrafted free agent out of West Texas A&M back in 2013. He managed to make the team’s 53-man roster in all three years with the Saints.
The Jets ultimately signed him to a one-year, $1.175 million contract as a free agent back in March. However, he was waived with an injury designation coming out of the preseason.
In 2015, Robinson appeared in eight games and ran for 180 yards on 56 carries (3.2 YPC) to go along with 17 receptions for 115 yards receiving and four touchdowns.
Wilds, 23, wound up signing on with the Falcons as undrafted free agent out of South Carolina back in May. He was waived with an injury designation coming out of the preseason and the Falcons eventually cut him from injured reserve with a settlement.
The Jets later signed him to their practice squad.
During his college career at South Carolina, Wilds ran for 1,844 yards on 379 career carries (4.87 YPC) and 13 touchdowns to go along with 59 receptions.
