With the apparent switch from the defensive line to fullback for Lawrence Thomas and placing Dylan Donahue on IR, the Jets had a couple of vacancies to fill in the front seven and they did so by adding former Arizona Cardinals lineman Ed Stinson and former New Orleans Saints linebacker Obum Gwacham.

Donahue, the team's fifth-round pick this year, injured his right elbow Sunday while blocking on a punt return late in overtime against Jacksonville. On the play, Donahue drew the unsportsmanlike conduct penalty that put the Jets within range for the game-winning field goal. The Jets, who announced the news on their website, did not disclose the exact In a release, the Jets did not disclose the exact nature of his injury.

The team also announced that it signed linebacker Freddie Bishop to the practice squad.

The Saints dropped Gwacham in September when they went to a roster of 53 players. Tye was cut by the Giants after the final preseason game last month. "The 6′ 3" 287 lb Stinson appeared in 10 games that season (2 starts), picking up just six tackles. That suspension ended after Sunday's game.

Stinson was a fifth-round draft choice of Arizona in 2014 and had 22 tackles in three seasons with the Cardinals. He was waived from injured reserve on Sep. 13.
