Jets see two players claimed off waivers Wednesday

The Jets cut their roster down to 53 players Tuesday and some of the players they waived they were hoping would clear waivers and can be stashed on their practice squad. Some did, some did not.

Per the NFL transaction wire and NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, the Jets had two players claimed off waivers, meaning they will be a part of the active rosters for their respective new teams.

Center Trystan Colon was one of six players claimed by the Arizona Cardinals. Colon might have been a practice squad candidate.

One player that did get claimed that certainly would have been a practice squad addition was linebacker Claudin Cherelus, who was claimed by the Carolina Panthers. He was one of three players claimed by Carolina.

The Jets were not awarded any players off waivers, so for now, their roster is set for the most part. Some moves will still be made as they also add to their practice squad.
