Claimed off of waivers from Detroit on Dec. 26, Lemonier played in the Jets Week 17 win over the Bills. He also spent time with Cleveland and Detroit last season, totaling nine tackles, two sacks, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery.

The Jets announced Monday that they have placed QB Bryce Petty on injured reserve and the club has claimed OLB off waivers from Detroit.

Petty suffered a torn labrum in his left shoulder Saturday against the Patriots while tackling CB Malcolm Butler following a second-quarter turnover. Petty made four starts this season and appeared in five contests, completing 56.4% of his passes for 809 yards with 3 TDs and 7 INTs.

Following the Jets’ loss to the Colts in Week 13, head coach Todd Bowles announced that Petty — barring injury — would start the team’s final four games. He has opened the past three, but was unable to finish each of the past two contests. The 6’3”, 230-pound Petty, a fourth-round pick out of Baylor in 2015, did not play his rookie campaign.

Harris moved into No. 2 on the Jets’ all-time tackles list and at 1,251 needs a mere 221 to pass No. 1 Kyle Clifton. Will he pursue it? “I’m under contract for another year, so we’ll see,” he said after the Bills finale. Lee and Jenkins will be back after getting that all-important offseason after their rookie years under their belts, as will Mauldin. Henderson could also return.

It will be interesting to see which among their other LBs on last year’s roster the Jets seek to re-sign. Catapano and both Martin and Carter, the special teams mainstays, can be unrestricted free agents. So can Corey Lemonier, who played just one game but flashed as a rusher vs. the Bills. Frank Beltre, a teammate of Bishop’s on the 2014 Grey Cup-champion Calgary Stampeders, was signed to a reserve/future contract.

“The long-term goal has always been to build through the draft. We do have some ability the way the cheap nike Jets jerseys contracts were structured to make determinations on how to proceed going forward if we decide to either create cap space or keep the player,” said Maccagnan at his season-ending news conference. “We’re no different than we were originally. Again, our long-term goal is to build through the draft.”

The Jets can clear space in several ways including the restructuring of existing contracts, the release of players and through trades. Then in early March, the Jets and the NFL’s other 31 teams will explore the open market.

The Jets didn’t suffer long from their second fourth-down shortcoming. Newly acquired LB Corey Lemonier, playing in the nickel, came free and he and Jordan Jenkins crushed Manuel in the pocket. After a Bowles challenge, ref Jeff Triplette reversed the sack into a Jenkins strip sack and fumble recovery at the Bills 13. Soon after, it was Fitz to , who stretch and broke the plane for a 6-yard score, the second TD of his rookie season.Men's New York Jets Nike Anthracite Salute to Service Player Performance Hoodie

The Ground & Pound approach took off in ’09 as the Jets led the NFL in rushing at 172.2 yards per game. Thomas Jones averaged 4.5 yards per carry, amassing 1,312 yards and 13 rush touchdowns. Leon Washington added 448 yards and 6 TDs on the ground. The Green & White, who also finished No. 1 in defense, ended up with the same 9-7 record as the year before. But this time around, they were able to earn postseason entry as a wild card.

“The way we were able to dominate the run game up front, we had a really good offensive line and we took a huge amount of pride in that,” said Faneca. “We always thought up front if we did our thing and Ground and Pound, then not only were we going to do well on offense but we’re going to make the defense that much better. We’re going to keep them off the field, we’re going to put their offense under the fire so our defense can go out there and start running their crazy stunts. We took great pride in putting the whole team on our back.”
