The Jets have brought back a little depth on the defensive line today. It has been reported that the Jets have brought back defensive tackle Matt Hardison to the practice squad. Hardison went to school at Rutgers before transferring to Delaware, where he got his playing experience.
Hardison, signed as a UDFA, was with the Jets for most of training camp before being released late in August. He has experience on both sides of the football, as reported by Manish Mehta, who has speculated that the Jets might try to experiment with him on the offense as well. He could turn into some sorely needed depth on the offensive line as well as the defensive line.
It is always good to add depth, but we still have to wonder if Mike Tannenbaum is going to add anyone at the running back position. As we know, with Bilal Powell and Joe McKnight both down, the depth chart is quite thin. Jonathan Grimes and Shonn Greene will be counted on heavily on Sunday afternoon if Mike does not make a move.
