NY Jets Kenbrell Thompkins

The New York Jets’ wideout unit took another hit this week when wide receiver Lucky Whitehead broke his foot and the franchise made a move to keep up the depth of the division on Wednesday, August 16.

The Jets announced that the organization have signed Kenbrell Thompkins to their 90-man roster lineup. Meanwhile, safety Doug Middleton was waive due to injury after tearing his pectoral muscle over the weekend.

[agg-ad id=”834″ align=”center”][agg-ad id=”442″ align=”center”]It is Thompkins’ second stint in the New York as he played for the team back in 2015 and caught 17 passes for 165 yards in seven matchups. Thompkins had 32 catches for 466 yards and four touchdowns as a New England Patriots rookie player back in 2013 and split the 2014 NFL season between the Patriots and Oakland Raiders.

The Jets lost projected No. 1 wide receiver Quincy Enunwa for the season from a neck injury and a earlier attempt to strengthen the group collapsed when Bruce Ellington was released after not passing a physical. Robby Anderson and Charone Peake are currently atop the New York Jets’ depth chart.
