Jets Promote DB Brandon Bryant, WR J.J. Jones & DT Destiny Vaeao

The New York Jets announced Saturday that they’ve promoted DB Brandon Bryant, WR J.J. Jones and DT Destiny Vaeao to their active roster.

Bryant, 23, wound up signing on with the Jets after going undrafted during this year’s Supplemental draft. The Jets waived him coming out of the preseason and later signed on to their practice squad after clearing waivers.

During his college career at Mississippi State, Bryant recorded 157 tackles, 3.5 sacks, 1.5 sacks, five interceptions with one being returned for a touchdown, seven pass defenses and a forced fumble over three seasons and 37 games played.

Vaeao, 24, signed on with the Eagles as an undrafted free agent out of Washington State back in 2016. He was in the final year of a three-year, $1.62 million contract and set to earn a base salary of $630,000 this season when the Eagles waived him with an injury designation and he later reverted to their injured reserve list.

Philadelphia would later cut Vaeao loose with an injury settlement and he eventually signed on to the Jets’ practice squad.

In 2018, Vaeao has appeared in six games for the Eagles and recorded two total tackles and one sack.
