The Jets also cut first-year guard Jason Nerys, and claimed wide
receiver Dante Ridgeway off waivers from the Cincinnati Bengals and
cornerback Lamont Reid off waivers from
the Arizona Cardinals.
Morley, a guard/tackle, spent the 2004 season with the Packers,
appearing in one game during the regular season. The 6-foot-7, 330-pound
Morley should provide depth on the line, after backup tackle Marko Cavka broke his wrist in the preseason finale.
Ridgeway broke the Mid-American Conference single-season record for
catches with 105 in 2004. He became the first player in school history
to leave Ball State early for the NFL. He was selected in the sixth
round of the draft by the St. Louis Rams and waived when the team cut
down to 65 players.
Reid, who played at N.C. State, signed with the Cardinals as a rookie
free agent following the draft.
