Jets Waive RB Kalen Ballage, Sign QB Mike White To Practice Squad


The New York Jets announced Monday that they’ve waived RB Kalen Ballage from their roster and signed QB Mike White to their practice squad.

Here’s the Jets updated practice squad:

  1. RB Josh Adams
  2. WR Lawrence Cager
  3. QB David Fales
  4. DB Bennett Jackson
  5. DB Lamar Jackson
  6. DE Bronson Kaufusi
  7. DE Corbin Kaufusi
  8. DB Zane Lewis

  12. TE Ross Travis
  13. WR Jaleel Scott
  14. LB Noah Dawkins
  15. LB Bryce Hager
  16. OT Blake Hance
  17. QB Mike White

Ballage, 24, is a former fourth-round pick by the Dolphins in the 2018 NFL Draft out of Arizona State. He was entering the third year of his four-year, $3 million rookie contract.

Miami had initially planned to release Ballage but the Jets swooped in with an offer before he could be placed on waivers. New York agreed to send a conditional 2021 seventh-round pick to Miami in exchange for Ballage. However, the deal fell through after he failed a physical. 

The Jets later signed Ballage to their roster. 

In 2020, Ballage has appeared in three games for the Jets and rushed for 13 yards on three carries (4.3 YPC) to go along with nine receptions for 67 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
