Jets Waive LB Arthur Brown, Sign LB Randell Johnson Off Rams’ PS

The New York Jets announced Monday that they’ve waived LB Arthur Brown and signed LB Randell Johnson off the Rams‘ practice squad.

Brown, 26, is a former second-round pick of the Ravens but hasn’t come close to living up to his draft status. Brown is in the final year of his four-year, $3.554 million contract.

The Ravens cut Brown loose coming out of the preseason and he was later claimed off of waivers by the Jaguars. However, Jacksonville waived him a few weeks ago and he was later claimed off of waivers by the Jets.

In 2016, Brown has appeared in 14 games and recorded three tackles for the Jaguars and Jets.

Johnson, 25, is a former seventh-round pick of the Bills back in 2014. He was in the third year of his four-year, $2,283,732 rookie contract and set to make a base salary of $600,000 for the 2016 season when Buffalo cut him loose.

The Bills waived him with an injury designation coming out of the preseason and he later reverted to their injured reserve list. Buffalo released him from injured reserve a few weeks later.

The Jets are one of a number of team’s that worked out Johnson prior to him signing to the Rams’ practice squad, so New York was impressed enough to sign him off their practice squad.

In 2015, Johnson appeared in 10 games for the Bills and recorded six tackles and a fumble recovery.
