Jets sign two of their own, including Doug Middleton
The Jets took care of some paperwork before leaving for the weekend, signing a pair of their own.
The team announced they had signed safety Doug Middleton and offensive linemen Ben Braden to their one-year deals.
Both were exclusive-rights free agents, which means they couldn’t negotiate with other teams.
Middleton has ended up on injured reserve twice for torn pectoral muscles. He’s played in 11 games, and scored a heads-up touchdown by recovering a kickoff in the end zone against the Bills in 2016.
Braden has spent the last two years on the practice squad.
