Less than a week after being released by the Oakland Raiders, tight end Clive Walford has been claimed by the New York Jets, the team announced Monday afternoon. Walford departed Oakland after a disappointing 2017 season that also included Jared Cook and Lee Smith at the tight end position. Walford recorded just nine receptions for 80 yards in 13 games and finished the campaign on injured reserve due to a concussion. With Cook dominating the role of No. 1 tight end, Walford was let go. The Jets are welcoming Walford, who replaces Austin Seferian-Jenkins. Combined with second-year tight end Jordan Leggett (who missed all of 2017 due to a knee injury) the Jets hope to have a good group at the position.
