FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — The New York Jets have signed tight end Braedon Bowman to their active roster, promoting him from the practice squad.
Bowman was claimed off waivers from Jacksonville on Sept. 4 and inactive for the Jets in the season opener. He was waived on Sept. 13 and then re-signed to the practice squad six days later.
He takes the roster spot of fullback Julian Howsare, who was waived Thursday. With the move Friday, the Jets now have three tight ends on their roster, including Bowman, Kellen Davis and Brandon Bostick.
Bowman was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Jaguars in May out of South Alabama, where he had 29 catches for 381 yards in two seasons.
