Jets claim TE Zach Sudfeld off waivers from Pats
Sudfeld, a rookie free agent, was waived by the Patriots on Thursday after he struggled during the regular season following an impressive preseason that included eight catches for 101 yards and a touchdown.
The Jets waived linebacker Scott Solomon to make room on the roster for Sudfeld.
The 6-foot-7, 260-pound Sudfeld played at the University of Nevada and signed with New England in May. He had no catches in three regular-season games for the Patriots.
