It looks like the Jets have signed some competition for John Conner.
Sources are reporting that the Jets have signed FB Fui Vakapuna to a one year contract. He was most recently on the roster of the Colts, and he was originally chosen from BYU by the Bengals with the 7th round pick.
It may be an open competition, as at the end of the draft, Mike Tannenbaum said John Conner is on the team “for now”, and will see how the competition plays out.
I guess we have one now.
