The Jets waived/injured tight end Zach Sudfeld (torn ACL) and signed former Patriots tight end Steve Maneri.
Sudfeld, a vital piece on special teams, was injured during Wednesday's minicamp practice when be was hit by safety Calvin Pryor during a noncontact drill.
The Jets signed Sudfeld off waivers from the Patriots in 2013. He played in 27 games the past two seasons with 10 receptions for 148 yards. He also led the Jets with 20 special-teams tackles.
Maneri, a Saddlebrook, New Jersey, native and Temple product, signed with the Texans as an undrafted free agent in 2010. He also played for the Patriots, Chiefs, Bears and Buccaneers before returning to New England late last season. He played in one game and was released before the Patriots played in Super Bowl XLIX. Maneri has played in 24 NFL games (10 starts) with six receptions for 52 yards.
Revis' mom gets his ring.
Darrelle Revis will get his Super Bowl bling soon enough.
According to a source, his mother picked up his championship ring on Monday at the Patriots' facility.
Due to a scheduling conflict, Revis could not attend a ring ceremony and party hosted by Pats owner Robert Kraft Sunday evening. So the cornerback's mother, Diana Askew, flew to Boston in his place. But it was only until after she landed that Askew was informed that the Patriots' event was primarily for players and the ticket was nontransferable.
In March, Revis re-signed with the Jets on a five-year, $70-million deal after helping the Patriots beat Seattle in Super Bowl XLIX.
