While disappointed by not making a 53-man roster, Ricky Foley is getting another chance to show an NFL team what he can do.
The linebacker has landed on the New York Jets’ practice squad, according to The Star Ledger. The Jets originally claimed Foley last week after he was released by the Seattle Seahawks, but then cut the former Canadian Football League star when they trimmed the roster to 53.
Being on the Jets’ practice squad, is the next best alternative, a source told NFL.com’s Steve Wyche on Saturday. Foley views the situation as a positive because he will get to play in a 3-4 scheme and work with Jets coach Rex Ryan.
