Here is a look at the latest Jets roster moves…
Sept. 16, 2:33 p.m.
With veteran Greg Zuerlein out due to a groin injury, the Jets have signed kicker Austin Seibert for Sunday’s matchup against the Dallas Cowboys.
Seibert was among the four kickers who worked out for the team Friday, and will likely be a one-week rental for New York unless Zuerlein is out for longer.
The 26-year-old was drafted by the Cleveland Browns in the fifth-round (No. 170 overall) of the 2019 NFL Draft out of Oklahoma, playing in all 16 games during his rookie season. Seibert then played four games with the Cincinnati Bengals and one game with the Browns during the 2020 season, before playing in six games with the Detroit Lions in 2021 and another three games last year.
Overall in 30 career games, he’s gone 55-for-61 (90.2 percent) on extra points and 44-for-55 (80.0 percent) on field goals with a long of 53 yards.

The Jets worked out a few players on Wednesday including former Giants wideout Kenny Golladay.
According to multiple reports, the Jets worked out Golladay, wide receivers James Proche and Jeff Smith. They also worked out former Ravens quarterback Anthony Brown and running back Ellis Merriweather.
It was noted by NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero that the Jets aren’t signing Golladay at this time.
Golladay played in 12 games (four starts) with the Giants last season. He caught six passes for 81 yards and one touchdown. The year prior, Golladay caught 37 passes for 521 yards and zero touchdowns with the G-Men.
The 29-year-old had his best years with the Detroit Lions where he was drafted. Golladay caught 226 passes for 3670 yards and 22 touchdowns and was selected to the Pro Bowl in 2019.
