Bryan Thomas is back with the Jets

Two days after he was cut by the Jets, Bryan Thomas is back with the only team he’s ever played for.

The Jets announced today that they have re-signed Thomas, a veteran linebacker who is the team’s longest-tenured player, having been with the Jets since they chose him in the first round of the 2002 NFL draft. We noted at the time of his release that it was likely Thomas would be back with the team, so this is no surprise. As a vested veteran who was on the roster in Week One, Thomas’s full salary was guaranteed for this season regardless of whether he played or not.

Donnie Fletcher, the cornerback who was called up from the practice squad with the roster spot vacated by Thomas, was waived today. It’s likely that he’ll be re-signed to the practice squad once he clears waivers.

The Jets also announced that they have signed receiver Patrick Turner and waived defensive tackle Marcus Dixon and offensive tackle Dennis Landolt.

    Is that the good news, or the bad news?

    Can someone explain why they did that? They didn’t save any money since his salary is guaranteed. What was the point of the move?

    He was injuried and would not have played anyway. Brought up a practice squad guy for extra depth.

    A little foreshadowing by the Jets, add an extra CB and then Revis goes down. Damn Jets jinx him
