Dwight Jones Signed to New York Jets Practice Squad

A new member of the practice squad joined the New York Jets on Wednesday: wide receiver Dwight Jones, who went undrafted out of North Carolina in 2012. The Texans signed him as a free agent, but that May, he told the team he did not want to pursue a football career. The Texans officially released him this past June. He hasn’t been on a team since leaving Houston shortly after signing. (Newark Star-Ledger)
