  3. TE Garrett Griffin
  4. DB Grant Haley
  5. LB Chase Hansen
  6. WR Lil’Jordan Humphrey

  8. WR Jake Lampman
  9. DT Christian Ringo
  10. QB Trevor Siemian
  11. OT Calvin Throckmorton
  12. DE Marcus Willoughby
  13. TE Ethan Wolf

Futures deals are essentially camp invites that will give players the opportunity to compete for roster spots during offseason workouts and training camp.

Siemian, 28, is a former seventh-round pick of the Broncos back in 2015. Denver traded him to the Vikings in 2018 for a fifth-round pick.

Siemian played out the final year of his four-year, $2.33 million contract before agreeing to a one-year contract with the Jets worth $2 million.

He was later brought in by the Titans in 2020 to compete for the backup quarterback job but was eventually waived and added to the team’s practice squad. The Saints later signed Siemian to their active roster following the injury to Drew Brees

For his career, Siemian has completed 59.2 percent of his passes for 5,689 yards, 30 touchdowns, and 24 interceptions over the course of 27 games. He also rushed for 183 yards and a touchdown.
