Joe Douglas has officially added to the Jets' roster for the first time as the team's GM.
During his introductory press conference, Douglas said that the Jets would use their No. 3 claim in the waiver wire to their advantage, and he's already making good on that claim in the early days of his tenure, as the Jets claimed CB Montrel Meander off waivers from the Oakland Raiders on Wednesday afternoon.
A Grambling State product, Meander originally signed with the Cleveland Browns as an undrafted free agent in 2018. He spent the majority of the season on the Browns' practice squad before finishing the year with the Raiders.
Listed at 6-foot-2, 215 pounds, Meander adds some depth to the Jets' secondary and will compete for a roster spot this summer. He is yet to appear in a regular season game in his young NFL career.
The Jets had an open spot on the roster after TE Neal Sterling was released on Tuesday in Douglas' first official move as GM.
