The New York Jets signed two more players to reserve/futures contracts today, general manager Mike Tannenbaum announced. Running back John Griffin and offensive lineman Matt Kroul have been added to the Jets’ 2012 roster.
Griffin, 5-foot-8, 208 pounds, played three seasons at Northeastern before the school eliminated football and finished his collegiate career at Massachusetts. He was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Cincinnati Bengals prior to the 2011 season, but was waived during the preseason.
Kroul is a 6-foot-3, 300-pound lineman who spent most of the 2011 season on the Jets practice squad. After the 2010 season, the former defensive tackle was signed to a reserve/future contract for the 2011 season. He spent the first 15 weeks of the 2010 season on the active roster, seeing action in six games and recording two tackles. Kroul originally joined the Jets as an undrafted free agent in May of 2009 and spent the season as a member of the practice squad.
