Don't ever say Mike Tannenbaum doesn't turn under every rock or that he doesn't work hard. Former New York Giants practice squad OG Mike Fladell has been claimed by the Jets off waivers.
Fladell started two years at Rutgers before being picked up as an undrafted free agent by the Giants. He's a big, big guy, at 6'7, 344 pounds. As you might expect, his main weakness is a lack of athleticism that comes with his massive size. He ran a 5.43 forty yard dash coming out of college.
He joins Mario Urritia and Rashad Barksdale (not related to Avon Barksdale from The Wire) as waiver wire pickups in the past week.
