Jets Release S Marqui Christian, Activate Two From Injured Reserve


The New York Jets announced Saturday that they’ve activated LB Blake Cashman and WR Vyncint Smith from injured reserve and released S Marqui Christian.

The Jets also promoted QB Mike White to their active roster.

Christian, 25, is a former fifth-round of the Cardinals back in 2016. Arizona waived Christian a few weeks into the 2016 regular season and he was later claimed off of waivers by the Rams.

Christian played out the year of his four-year, $2.55 million contract. He agreed to a one-year deal worth $2 million for the 2020 season with the Jets this offseason. However, the deal later fell through and he later signed on with the Bears in August. 

He was reinstated from suspension before being released by the Bears. From there, Christian signed on to the Bears’ practice squad before eventually agreeing to join the Jets’ active roster last month. 

In 2019, Christian appeared in all 16 games for the Rams and recorded 34 tackles, no interceptions and two passes defended.
