The Jets signed defensive lineman Xavier Cooper and placed rookie tight end Jordan Leggett on injured reserve.

Originally the Browns’ third-round pick in 2015, Cooper has racked up 46 tackles and 2.0 sacks in 32 games. Cleveland waived the 6’4”, 300-pounder on Sept. 2 and he signed with the 49ers, but was released Oct. 24. Cooper, a Washington State product, totaled 121 tackles, 31.5 tackles for loss and 13 sacks in three years for the Cougars.

Leggett has battled a knee injury throughout the season that he suffered in Week 2 of the preseason. In three preseason contests, the Clemson product reeled in five catches for 64 yards. The 6’5”, 258-pound Leggett has been inactive for the majority of the regular season with the knee ailment. The 22-year-old tallied 86 catches for 1,261 yards and 15 touchdowns in his final two years for the Tigers.
