The Jets are at it again.

As they have done multiple times in the past, the Jets have claimed a player released by the Patriots. On Monday, they claimed 2017 third-round pick Tony Garcia. The offensive tackle was released last Friday.

Garcia didn't play at all last year reportedly due to blood clots in his lungs. He posted to Instagram in March that he was cleared to play, which made it somewhat interesting he was released last week.

It's worth pointing out both tackles selected by the Patriots last season are now on other teams in the AFC East, as Conor McDermott is with the Bills.
