The Jets signed defensive end Kareem Brown to the practice squad. Brown was waived by the Jets Nov. 1 to open a roster spot for linebacker Jason Trusnik, who was activated from the PUP list. Brown was inactive for the first seven games this season, but he did show promise in the preseason, when he was fourth on the team with 12 tackles (nine solo) and recorded one sack. Brown, a two-year veteran who was originally claimed off waivers from the Patriots, Nov. 29, 2007, appeared in one game for the Jets last season.

To open a spot for Brown on the practice squad, the Jets released tight end Brad Listorti. Listorti was signed to the Jets’ practice squad Sept. 10, was released on Sept. 23 and re-signed on Oct. 21.
