Jets Release OT Zach Sterup From Practice Squad

The New York Jets have released OT Zach Sterup from their practice squad on Tuesday.

The Jets’ practice squad now consists of:

  1. S Ronald Martin
  2. G Craig Watts
  3. LB Freddie Bishop 
  4. CB Bryson Keeton
  5. S Doug Middleton
  6. RB Brandon Wilds
  7. DT Brandin Bryant
  8. OLB Victor Ochi
  9. WR Mario Alford

Sterup, 24, wound up going undrafted out of Nebraska back in May but received an invite to participate in the Chiefs’ rookie minicamp on a tryout basis. The Chiefs later signed him to a three-year, $1.62 million contract.

Unfortunately, the Chiefs waived him coming out of the preseason and he was on and off of their practice squad before the Jets signed him to a contract a few weeks ago.

It’s worth mentioning that Sterup was suspended in August for the first four games for violating the policy on performance-enhancing substances.

Sterup started 17 games for Nebraska during his college career.
