The New York Jets claimed CB Johnny Patrick off waivers from the San Diego Chargers on Wednesday.
Patrick, 25, was a third-round pick of the Saints back in 2011. He played two years with New Orleans before they elected to cut him loose.
Patrick was claimed off waivers by the Chargers last February and would go on to appear in 13 games for them this past season.
He had a base salary of $645,000 and would have counted $700,000 against the team’s salary cap.
The Chargers freed up $4.85 million total with these three moves.
