Jets Re-Sign WR Deshon Foxx, Devin Smith to IR

The Jets have re-signed WR Deshon Foxx and waived/injured WR Devin Smith, who cleared waivers and was placed on IR.

Foxx (5'10, 177) originally signed a reserve-future contract with the Jets in January and was waived May 9. The Connecticut product first signed with the Seahawks in 2015 after going undrafted and was waived/injured with a hamstring injury that August.

Smith (6'1, 199) tore his ACL during Phase One of the offseason workout program. The Ohio State product appeared in four games last season after starting the year on the PUP list as he was rehabbing from another ACL tear suffered in December 2015.

"It's bad luck and bad timing because the kid worked so hard to get back," head coach Todd Bowles said following the second day of the NFL Draft. "He has to persevere and adversity will help him get stronger. But unfortunately in this game, over my course of time playing and coaching, you see these types of things. Some of the best athletes get hurt and don't get a chance to get on the field and it's just bad timing, bad luck."
