Jets sign ex-Pat Ras-I Dowling to the practice squad

Ras-I Dowling, the first pick of the second round in 2011, struggled with injuries in his few years wearing a Patriot uniform.

He barely saw the field. In fact, he saw it so little that he's still eligible for the practice squad.

The Jets have a knack for signing ex-Patriots. They claimed Zach Sudfeld after he was waived by the team earlier this year, and made him a captain for the game against the Patriots.
