The Jets have claimed former Patriots 3rd round selection – Antonio Garcia. They have waived kicker Nick Rose in a corresponding move.
The former Troy standout was placed on IR last season due to blood clots in his lungs. He was expected to be in the running for left tackle once the Patriots lost Nate Solder to the Giants. With the Jets Garcia will be stashed behind Beachum, Shell & Ijalana – with more of a chance to contribute in 2019.
