Jets Activate S Rontez Miles From PUP List, Waive S Ibraheim Campbell

The New York Jets announced Friday that they’ve activated S Rontez Miles from the PUP list and waived S Ibraheim Campbell.

Miles underwent surgery last month to repair a torn meniscus which will require a 3-4 month recovery and let to him being placed on the PUP list coming out of the preseason.

Miles, 29, wound up signing on with the Jets as an undrafted free agent out of California (PA) back in 2013. He was on and off of the Jets’ roster over first three years with the team before managing to spend the last two years on the 53-man unit.

The Jets re-signed Miles to a one-year, $1.907 million restricted deal this offseason.

In 2017, Miles appeared in 13 games for the Jets and recorded 25 tackles and no interceptions or pass defenses.

Campbell, 26, is a former fourth-round pick of the Browns back in 2015. He was in the third year of his four-year, $2,792,008 contract and set to make a base salary of $615,000 when Cleveland decided to waive him with an injury settlement last year.

Campbell signed on with the Texans towards the end of last season but was among their final roster cuts a few months ago. He had a brief stint with the Cowboys before signing on with the Jets a few weeks ago.

In 2017, Campbell appeared in nine games and recorded 18 tackles, one fumble recovery and a pass defense. He has played in four games this year but has not recorded any statistics.
