Jets Claim Urrutia

While most NFL teams take a vacation, the Jets are staying active on the waiver wire.
Hours after claiming cornerback Rashad Barksdale (no relation to Avon), Gang Green claimed former Bengals wideout Mario Urrutia, according to Scout.com’s Adam Caplan.
Urrutia, who measures at 6’6″, was a seventh-round pick by Cincinnati in 2008 after an up and down career at Louisville.  He was a phenom as a freshman and sophomore, but disappeared after Bobby Petrino left for the NFL.
The Jets are lacking depth at wideout, but Urrutia looks like a long shot to make the roster after failing to make it to July with Cincinnati.

    My wife had a URRUTIA Tract Infection once. Let me tell you…That is a lose-lose situation for everyone involved.

    sounds contagious AND deadly.

    Bengals’ WR situation is much more settled than the Jets’. This could be a good landing spot for Urrutia. Though I’m kind-of confused as to why Marcus Henry hasn’t gotten more of a shot…

    Urrutia being cut in June isnt necessarily an indictment on his ability. Bengals are DEEP at WR with Ocho, Coles, Henry, Caldwell & Simspon with Cosby and Brown vying for the final spot.

    Cincy is too deep at WR for him to make their squad. I wish him the best with the Jets.

    If I were a Jets fan I’d claim to be pretty urrutiated too.
