After a pitiful performance Monday night, the Jets are now willing to give WR David Clowney another chance, perhaps realizing that he could be a contributing force to a struggling offense.

Clowney was waived on September 5 and is now being brought back to the Jets organization after they made the decision to cut RB/WR Danny Woodhead.

Clowney was originally drafted in the fifth round of the 2007 NFL Draft by the Green Bay Packers. He was then signed off the Green Bay practice squad by the Jets on October 3, 2007.

Throughout Clowney's career he has struggled to be consistent, only recording 15 receptions for 217 yards and one touchdown in two seasons with the Jets. But now, in desperate need of offensive production, the Jets have brought back Clowney to add more speed to this receiving corps.

Although there was speculation that the Jets would sign Laveranues Coles, the signing of Clowney has seemingly destroyed any hopes of signing the beloved veteran.

As for Danny Woodhead, the versatile 5'9" RB/WR ran for 64 yards on 15 carries and caught eight passes for 87 yards in 10 games for the Jets last season. He now will most likely be signed to the practice squad once he clears waivers, like in September 2009, when Woodhead was waived on September 6 and signed to the practice squad on September 8.
