The New York Jets have picked up a cast off from their cross-town rivals.

The Jets claimed wide receiver Marcus Davis off waivers from the New York Giants on Tuesday. Davis signed with the Giants as an undrafted free agent but was released by the team on Saturday. Davis racked up 105 catches for 1,827 yards and 13 touchdowns during his collegiate career at Virginia Tech including 51 catches for 953 yards and five touchdowns last season.

The Jets also released wide receiver Antavious Wilson. Wilson signed with the Jets last week and participated in the team’s rookie mini-camp over the weekend. Wilson had 69 catches for 741 yards and nine touchdowns during his senior season at Marshall University.
