As the saying goes, one man’s trash is another man’s “we can’t do any worse so why not give it a shot?” Or something.
Per multiple reports, which PFT has confirmed, former Browns cornerback Leon McFadden has been claimed on waivers by the Jets.
The 68th overall pick in 2013, the Browns selected McFadden one spot before the Cardinals picked Tyrann Mathieu. The choice was made by former G.M. Michael Lombardi, who now serves as a consultant to the Jets’ most hated rivals, the Patriots.
McFadden appeared in all 16 games last year with two starts. He now bolsters a depth chart depleted by injury and the bizarre circumstances surrounding veteran Dimitri Patterson, who was cut on Saturday.
