Tye, 25, wound up signing on with the Giants as an undrafted free agent out of Stony Brook back in 2015. He was unable to make the team coming out of the preseason but was later signed to the team’s practice squad.
The Giants elected to bring Tye back last year on an exclusive rights contract and he worked his way into a much larger role in the team’s offense. They brought him back on an exclusive rights contract this offseason but elected to waive him coming out of the preseason.
The Jets claimed him off of waivers.
In 2017, Tye has appeared in three games for the Jets and caught four passes for 38 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
