The New York Jets announced Wednesday that they’ve signed RB Brandon Burks to their practice squad.
The Jets’ practice squad now consists of:
- CB Bryson Keeton
- RB Brandon Wilds
- DT Brandin Bryant
- OLB Victor Ochi
- OT Donald Hawkins
- WR Darius Jennings
- FB Chris Swain
- DE Kenny Anunike
- G Martin Wallace
- RB Brandon Burks
Burks, 22, wound up going undrafted out of Troy before signing three-year, $1.62 million contract with the Packers. It appeared as though Burks was going to be the Packers’ No. 3 running back before they elected to waive him during their final roster cuts.
Green Bay brought Burks back in November for a brief stint on their practice squad.
During his four-year college career at Troy, Burks recorded 430 carries for 2,253 yards (5.2 YPC) and 12 rushing touchdowns. He also accumulated 88 receptions for 673 yards receiving (7.6) and three touchdowns.
