Langford, 26, was taken with the No. 106 overall pick in the fourth round of last year’s NFL draft by the Bears. He was in the second year of his four-year, $3.139 million rookie contract and set to make a base salary of $615,000 for the 2017 season when the Bears cut him loose coming out of the preseason.
The Ravens signed Langford to their practice squad soon and was on and off of the unit before eventually catching on with the Jets in December. New York brought Landford back on a futures deal this past January.
In 2016, Langford appeared in all 16 games for the Bears and recorded 62 rushing attempts for 200 yards (3.2 YPC).
Stave, 25, wound up signing a three-year, $1.62 million contract with the Vikings as an undrafted free agent out of Wisconsin back in May of last year. He was, unfortunately, waived at the start of the regular season before signing on to the Vikings’ practice squad.
Stave had brief stints with the Seahawks, Chiefs and Redskins before the Jets added him to their practice squad last December. New York elected to bring Stave back on a futures contract this past January.
During his four-year college career, Stave threw for 7,635 yards while completing 59.5 percent of his passes to go along with 48 touchdowns and 37 interceptions.
