Jets sign TE Matt LaCosse; Team waives Davon Walls

Today the New York Jets signed tight end Matt LaCosse. LaCosse was recently waived by the New York Giants. In a corresponding move the team waived small school defensive tackle Davon Walls. 

LaCosse (6’6″, 240) is a rookie free agent who first signed with the Giants on May 7. The Giants waived him on Aug. 1. He joins a Jets TEs room that includes fellow Illinois product Jeff Cumberland, Jace Amaro, Kellen Davis, Steve Maneri, Wes Saxton and Arthur Lynch in time for Saturday night’s annual preseason game against the Giants at MetLife Stadium.
