According to Howard Balzer, the Jets brought in eight free agents for workouts on Tuesday.
The full list includes:
- RB Travaris Cadet
- RB Knile Davis
- CB Makinton Dorleant
- S Ironhead Gallon
- LB Gabe Martin
- WR Rashad Ross
- TE Greg Scruggs
- DE Jhaustin Thomas
Of this group, the Jets signed Cadet to their active roster.
Dorleant, 24, signed on with the Packers as an undrafted free agent out of Northern Iowa. He wound up making the team’s 53-man roster but landed on the injured reserve after sustaining a hamstring injury during the preseason.
The Packers later activated Dorleant from their injured reserve but he, unfortunately, suffered a torn ACL soon after.
Dorleant is in the second year of his three-year, $1.62 million contract and stands to make a base salary of $540,000 for the 2017 season.
In 2016, Dorleant appeared in four games for the Packers and recorded one tackle and no interceptions.
