In between now and training camp, I'm looking at some of the veterans on the Jets roster to assess what kind of contribution we might expect from them in 2016. We're going to shift gears and take a look at the practice squad in terms of who is eligible, how it will likely be made up and what we can learn from who was on there during the 2015 season.

During the week, Jets special teams coordinator Bobby April vowed that there would be changes on the unit. Whatever the changes were, they seemed to work. What were the changes, though? It's not immediately apparent.

There were no lineup changes other than the fact that Kenbrell Thompkins was deactivated for Darrelle Revis. And it's not like Thompkins was involved in any of the breakdowns last week. I didn't see any other obvious personnel changes, so maybe they did something subtle with their scheme.

The performance on the kickoff coverage unit stood out. On seven kickoffs, Randy Bullock had four touchbacks and the Jets stopped the Titans inside the 20 on the other three. On those plays, Quincy Enunwa in particular was doing an excellent job of getting downfield.

Safety Ronald Martin was added back to the Jets' practice squad after clearing waivers, the team announced Monday night.

Martin was placed on waivers before Sunday's loss to the Texans. New York signed him from the practice squad to the active roster before the Jets' Week 10 loss to the Bills.

Martin, 22, is in his rookie season after attending LSU.

The Jets activated wide receiver Quincy Enunwa and signed defensive end Mike Catapano for Sunday's game against the Texans.

Enunwa will return to the Jets after serving a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy. He has eight catches for 94 yards this season.

Catapano, 25, will join the Jets after spending the 2013 season with the Chiefs, playing 15 games. A third-year player out of Princeton, Catapano was a seventh-round draft pick in 2013.

To make room on the roster, the Jets placed running back Zac Stacy, who suffered a fractured ankle in the Jets' Nov. 12 game against the Bills, on injured reserve and waived safety Ronald Martin.
