The New York Jets signed former Detroit Lions cornerback Aaron Berry and waived injured tight end Dedrick Epps.
Berry was suspended for three games in August after violating the league's personal-conduct policy and subsequently released by the Lions. He was arrested during the summer on charges of simple assault and suspicion of DUI.
Berry's signing could be a a precursor to the Jetts putting cornerback Darrelle Revis, who has a torn anterior cruciate ligament, on season-ending injured reserve.
Berry, an undrafted free agent, has played in 11 games over two seasons and made three starts for Detroit.
"We feel Aaron has a chance to be successful on and off the field here," Jets coach Rex Ryan said.
Epps, a seventh-round draft pick by San Diego in 2010, played in three games with the Jets.
