Jets Add Three To Active Roster Including LB Alec Ogletree & RB Josh Adams

The New York Jets officially promoted RB Josh Adams and WR Josh Malone to their active roster for Week 2’s game. 

Alec Ogletree

The Jets also signed LB Alec Ogletree to the active roster.

Ogletree, 28, is a former first-round pick of the Rams back in 2013. He played out the final year of his four-year, $7.03 million contract and later signed a  five-year, $42.29 million contract with the Rams.

The Rams traded Ogletree to the Giants in 2018 for a fourth-round pick and a swap of late-round picks. New York opted to release him this past February and he just recently signed on to the Jets’ practice squad.  

In 2019, Ogletree appeared in 13 games for the Giants and recorded 80 tackles, one sack, one interception and six pass defenses.

Adams, 23, wound up signing on with the Eagles as an undrafted free agent out of Notre Dame back in 2018. He signed a three-year, $1.71 million contract, but was waived coming out of the preseason as the Eagles trimmed their roster down to 53 players.

Philadelphia later signed Adams to their practice squad after clearing waivers. He was promoted to the active roster two games into the season before later being waived and signing on to the Jets’ practice squad. 

In 2020, Adams has appeared in one game for the Jets and rushed for eight yards on two carries and a touchdown. He also caught two passes for 14 yards receiving.
