Jets signed S Rontez Miles from their practice squad.

Fifth-round OG Jarvis Harrison was waived in a corresponding move. With Calvin Pryor (ankle) set to miss his second game in a row, Miles will be asked to shore up a safety corps which was a disaster last week against Oakland. It is not out of the question Miles earns the start ahead of Marcus Williams and Dion Bailey.

Jets S Rontez Miles underwent offseason hip surgery.

A second-year UDFA out of California (PA), Miles spent the majority of 2013 on the Jets' practice squad. At 6'0/203, he's a big hitter whom ESPN New York mentions as a sleeper to "make a move in training camp" and contribute. Miles posted a 36.5-inch vertical and 10-foot-3 broad jump at the 2013 Combine.

Jets signed California (PA) S Rontez Miles.

Miles (5-foot-11 5/8, 203) was a two-time first-team FCS All American, making 43 career starts and intercepting nine passes at free safety for the Vulcans. He ran 4.62 at the Combine and demonstrated lower-body explosion both in the vertical (36.5") and broad jump (10-foot-3). The Jets' talent-deficient roster is the place to go as an undrafted free agent.
