The New York Jets have signed RB Jahad Thomas to their practice squad on Tuesday, according to his agency SIG Sports.
The Jets’ practice squad now consists of:
- OL Ben Braden
- CB Xavier Coleman
- DL Deon Simon (Exception)
- CB Terrell Sinkfield
- OL Geoff Gray
- WR JoJo Natson
- WR Damore’ea Stringfellow
- DE Claude Pelon
- DB Robert Nelson
- RB Jahad Thomas
Thomas, 21, wound up signing a three-year, $1.66 million contract with the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent out of Temple back in May. He stands to make base salaries of $465,000 and $555,000 over the first two years of the agreement.
The Cowboys waived Thomas with an injury designation a few weeks ago and he later reverted to their injured reserve list. Dallas elected to cut him loose from injured reserve last month and he caught on with the Jets soon after.
Unfortunately, Thomas was among the Jets’ final roster cuts coming out of the preseason.
During his four-year college career, Thomas rushed for 2,599 yards on 563 carries (4.6 YPC) to go along with 69 receptions for 998 yards receiving and 38 total touchdowns over the course of 46 games.
