On Friday, the Jets made two practice squad transactions as they signed wide receiver and kick returner Lucky Whitehead and released linebacker Jeremy Cash.
Whitehead was claimed off waivers from the Dallas Cowboys this summer and was in line to be the Jets kick returner before he fractured his foot in a practice after the Jets first preseason game. In September he was waived. During the 2015-16 season, Whitehead played in 30 games for Dallas, averaging nearly 26 yards per kick return.
The Jets plan to get Whitehead back into a rhythm following the foot fracture and then get him to return to the special teams unit where he potentially could fill in for the suspended Jeremy Kerley.
