Jets waive G Nerys, sign WR and CB

By Jets Staff
September 4th, 2005
The Jets announced thay have waived first-year guard Jason Nerys signed WR Dante Ridgeway off waivers from the Bengals and CB Lamont Reid from the Arizona Cardinals.

Ridgeway (6'1", 200 LBS), from Ball State broke the Mid-American Conference single-season record for catches with 105 in 2004. He was originally a 2005 sixth-round pick of the St. Louis Rams and was waived when the team cut-down to 65 players before being awarded to the Bengals the following day.

Reid (5'11"-190 LBS), from North Carolina State, recorded 125 tackles (88 solo) as well as two interceptions. He also returned 38 kicks for 984 yards and two touchdowns. As a senior in 2004, Reid returned seven kicks for a team-high 212 yards while adding 27 tackles, one interception and 10 pass breakups on defense. Reid signed with the Cardinals as a rookie free agent following the 2005 Draft.

Nerys, 6-3, 305-pounds, is a New Jersey native who signed with the Jets as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2004. Nerys went to camp with the Jets in '04 and spent the majority of the 2004 season on the Club's practice squad before re-signing with the Jets following last season.

The Jets' roster now stands at the maximum 53 player limit.
