NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Jets have traded defensive back Dwight Lowery to the Jacksonville Jaguars for an undisclosed conditional draft choice as teams got down to the mandatory 53-player roster limit.
New York also acquired guard Caleb Schlauderaff from Green Bay on Saturday, also for an undisclosed conditional draft choice.
The Jets have cut 26 players, including wide receivers Scotty McKnight, a childhood friend of quarterback Mark Sanchez, and Patrick Turner, a former teammate of Sanchez’s at Southern California. Among those making New York’s initial roster is linebacker Aaron Maybin, the former Buffalo first-round pick who was released by the Bills after two unproductive seasons.
Lowery spent three seasons as a versatile safety and cornerback for the Jets after being drafted in the fourth round out of San Jose State.
