The Jets are returning two players from last season in S Doug Middleton and OL Ben Braden, as they signed exclusive rights tenders on Friday.
Middleton didn't get to play a full season with New York in 2018 after a torn pectoral muscle ending his year in Week 7. The Jets had Middleton start at safety in place of Marcus Maye, who was also banged up all throughout the season. The Appalachian State product totaled 27 tackles with three passes defended.
Braden played in two games with the Jets last season, while spending most of his time on the practice squad. He signed a reserve/future contract back on Jan. 1, 2018.
