Jets Release RB Jordan Todman, Sign RB Jahad Thomas

According to Ralph Vacchiano, the Jets have signed RB Jahad Thomas after hosting him for a workout on Wednesday and released RB Jordan Todman.

Todman, 27, is a former sixth-round pick of the Chargers back in 2011. He lasted less than a year with the Chargers before he was cut and later signed to the Vikings’ practice squad.

Todman bounced around a bit with theĀ Jaguars, Panthers and SteelersĀ before signing a one-year contract with the Colts last March. Todman signed on with the Jets a few months ago.

In 2016, Todman appeared in 15 games for the Colts and rushed for 59 yards on nine carries (6.6 YPC) to go along with 478 kick return yards and a touchdown.

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.

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.
