Doesn't look like he's played a down in the NFL, but he signed a 3-year futures contract this year.

Is he being brought in to compete to start, backup duty, or is he bound for the practice squad?

Futures contracts let teams avoid counting the money against this years cap and instead of the 53 man roster he counts against the 90 man camp roster. Essentially they extended him a training camp spot and if things don't work out they can cut him without cap implications. I believe he has one more year of practice squad eligibility if they want to stash him there as well.

I thought he could have hung around and eventually broken a roster if he was on defense, but the Jets and their anemic offensive staff put him at a position he had never played and they couldn't coach him at.
