The Jets added one of Zach Wilson’s BYU teammates as an undrafted free agent.

The other undrafted free agents known to have reached agreement with the Jets are: Rutgers DT Michael Dwumfour, Illinois LB Milo Eifler, Oregon State edge rusher Hamilcar Rashed, New Mexico OL Teton Saltes and Rutgers safety Brendon White.
