Jets sign linebacker Josh Martin off Colts practice squad

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) The New York Jets have signed outside linebacker Josh Martin to their active roster from the Indianapolis Colts' practice squad.

Martin has 28 career tackles with a half-sack and a forced fumble in 21 NFL games, all with Kansas City. He has also spent time with Tampa Bay.

He replaces Quinton Coples, the Jets' 2012 first-round draft pick who was waived on Monday.

Martin was signed by the Chiefs as an undrafted free agent in 2013 out of Columbia University, where he was an All-Ivy League first-team selection. He spent two seasons in Kansas City before being signed by Tampa Bay in September. He was waived/injured by the Buccaneers last month and signed to the Colts' practice squad on Oct. 31.
