Jets trade for Packers OL Morley
NFL.com wire reports

HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (Sept. 4, 2005) -- The New York Jets acquired offensive lineman Steve Morley from the Green Bay Packers for an undisclosed draft choice.

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.
