The Jets have claimed former Louisville WR Mario Urrutia off waivers from Cincinnati.
Urrutia is 6'6, 235 pounds, but he failed to make an impact with the Bengals as a rookie 7th round pick last year.
He probably won't make the team, but his size is certainly intriguing, and he had some success in college. He's only 23 years old, so there's still upside to be had. Still, with Jerricho Cotchery, Chansi Stuckey, Brad Smith, David Clowney, and Wallace Wright all likely to make the roster, Urrutia is a long-shot at best.
The Jets also signed former Eagle, Chief, Giant, and Albany Great Dane Rod Barksdale. He is a 6'0, 208 pound cornerback who will add depth to a position that has already seen Lito Sheppard and Donald Strickland brought in. He played six games in 2007 for Kansas City, recording nine tackles, but it's unlikely that he makes the final roster.
