Jets Waive TE Temuchin Hodges

According to Rich Cimini, the Jets have waived TE Temuchin “Bucky” Hodges from their training camp roster.

Cimini notes that this is a corresponding roster move to New York signing veteran C Ryan Kalil

Hodges, 23, is a former sixth-round of the Vikings back in 2017. He signed a four-year, $2.55-million contract with the Vikings but was waived with an injury designation coming out of the preseason.

Minnesota eventually cut Hodges loose a few weeks later and he would go on to have brief stints with the Panthers, Bills and Jets before the Steelers signed him to a contract last August.

He was unable to make the 53-man roster coming out of the preseason, but the Steelers later signed him to their taxi squad.

Hodges was released by the Steelers in April and caught on with the Jets last week, making his stint in New York short-lived. 

During his college career at Virginia Tech, Hodges caught 133 passes for 1,747 yards receiving and 20 touchdowns to go along with 89 rushing and 21 total touchdowns over the course of 39 games.
