The New York Jets announced Thursday that they’ve placed DL Claude Pelon on waivers.
Rich Cimini mentions that could promote DE Lawrence Thomas from their practice squad in the coming days.
Pelon, 24, wound up signing on with the Jets as an undrafted free agent out of back in May of last year. He was waived coming out of the preseason and later signed to team’s practice squad at the start of the season.
The Jets brought Pelon back on a future/reserve contract this past January and he managed to make the 53-man roster a few weeks ago.
In 2017, Pelon appeared in one game and has recorded two tackles and no sacks.
