Jets Claim WR Jeremy Butler Off Waivers From Buccaneers


Pro Football Talk is reporting that the Jets have claimed WR Jeremy Butler off of waivers from the Buccaneers on Tuesday.

Butler, 25, wound up signing on with the Ravens as an undrafted free agent out of Tennessee-Martin back in May of 2014. He managed to make the 53-man roster during his rookie season, but was waived and later signed to their practice squad last season.

The Ravens brought him back on an exclusive rights contract only to cut him loose coming out of the preseason. The Buccaneers signed him to their practice squad a few days later and promoted him to their active roster last week.

In 2015, Butler appeared in eight games for the Ravens and recorded 31 receptions for 363 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
