09/04/16 - S Rontez Miles made the Jets' 53-man roster -- for real, this time. Miles, who has appeared in 10 games for the Jets since 2013, initially made the 53-man roster last season but was waived during the subsequent "mini-draft."

He was activated from the practice squad prior to the penultimate game of last season but suffered a serious leg injury in practice two days later and ended up on injured reserve. Miles led the Jets during the preseason with 23 tackles and also added a fumble recovery for a touchdown.
