He also returned 75 kickoffs for the Raiders for a 25.0-yard average and four TDs. In this year’s three preseason games he had three receptions for 19 yards and three kickoff returns for a 23.0-yard average.

Campbell is a second-year man who was participating in his third Jets training camp. He first arrived as an undrafted free agent out of Temple in July 2011 and played in four games last season. He also made a stop with the Rams for their 2012 camp. This summer he played in all three games and had two receptions for 28 yards.

TE – Colin Anderson

Anderson was signed by Minnesota as an undrafted free agent last year. He was a final cut by the Vikings, was worked out by the Jets in October, and signed a reserve/future deal Dec. 31. He didn’t play in any of the three preseason games.

FB – Chad Young

Young was added as an unrestricted free agent out of San Diego State after the May draft. He played 48 snaps in the preseason games and had one reception for 8 yards.

DE – Anthony Grady

Grady was an undrafted free agent out of Missouri State signed by the Jets after the May draft. He got in for 11 plays in the first two preseason games but didn’t play vs. the Giants.

CB – Ras-I Dowling

Dowling was New England’s second-round pick in 2011 and played in nine games for the Patriots before being a last cut in 2013. The Jets signed him to their practice squad last October and to a reserve/future deal Jan. 6. He got in six special teams snaps in the first two preseason games and didn’t play vs. the Giants.”
