The New York Jets continued signing players to reserve/futures contracts on Friday, adding two more players to their offseason roster for 2012. Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum today announced the signings of wide receiver Royce Adams and punter Travis Baltz.
Adams, a 6-foot, 190-pounder, is an intriguing story. He played the 2011 season with the AFL’s Pittsburgh Power. He converted from cornerback to wide receiver prior to his senior season at Purdue in 2009. Adams played in 46 games for the Boilermakers, also spending time at both kick and punt returner.
Baltz, 6-3, 210 pounds, was waived by the Indianapolis Colts in September of 2011 after being signed by the team as an undrafted free agent in July. He played four years at Maryland where he punted 224 times for an average of 41.2 yards and earned all-conference honors in 2008.
