Jets Sign Four, Place Five On Injured Reserve


The New York Jets announced Monday that they’ve re-signed C Josh Andrews, TE Dan Brown, S Matthias Farley and CB Nate Hairston to contracts. 

The Jets also placed OL Cameron Clark, LB Patrick Onwuasor, WR Jeff Smith, WR Vyncint Smith and DL Jabari Zuniga on injured reserve.

Hairston, 26, is a former fifth-round pick of the Colts back in 2017. He was entering the third year of his four-year, $2.66 million contract when he was traded to the Jets in 2019.

New York released Hairston this past weekend. 

In 2019, Hairston appeared in 11 games for the Jets and recorded 24 tackles, one interception and three pass defenses. Pro Football Focus had him rated as the No. 93 cornerback out of 115 qualifying players.

Andrews, 29, wound up signing on with the Eagles as an undrafted free agent out of Oregon State back in 2014. He spent his rookie season on the Eagles’ practice squad before returning to the team on a futures contract.

The Eagles elected to cut Andrews loose at the start of the 2017 season and later added him to their practice squad. Andrew signed a futures contract with the Vikings but was waived with an injury settlement at the start of the regular season and later returned to the Eagles’ practice squad.

He was signed off of Philadelphia’s taxi squad in November of 2018 by the Colts and spent the last two years in Indianapolis. The Jets signed him to a contract this past March before releasing him on Saturday. 

In 2019, Andrews appeared in six games for the Colts as a backup.
