The New York Jets announced Thursday that they’ve promoted WR Josh Malone to their active roster.
Malone, 23, is a former fourth-round pick of the Bengals back in 2017. He was entering the third year of his four-year, $2.99 million contract that included a $593,528 signing bonus when the Bengals waived him coming out of the preseason this past September.
The Jets later signed Malone to their practice squad after clearing waivers.
For his career, Malone has appeared in 20 games for the Bengals and caught seven passes for 75 yards receiving and one touchdown.
