Jets claim K Rose; S Miles, TE Sterling sign RFA tenders
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — The New York Jets have claimed kicker Nick Rose off waivers from the Los Angeles Chargers, giving free-agent signing Cairo Santos some camp competition this offseason.
The team also announced Monday that safety Rontez Miles and tight end Neal Sterling have signed their restricted free agent tenders, and wide receiver Brisly Estime has been waived.
Rose spent last summer with San Francisco before being among the 49ers’ final cuts. He kicked in eight games for the Redskins and two for the Chargers, going 11 of 14 on field goals and 23 of 26 on extra points. He was waived by Los Angeles last Friday. Rose was originally signed by Atlanta in 2016 as an undrafted free agent out of Texas, but was cut during training camp.
The Jets signed Santos to a one-year, $2 million deal in March after allowing Chandler Catanzaro to leave as a free agent.
