The New York Jets announced today the signing of tackle Drew Strojny to the practice squad.
Strojny, 24, was released on August 27, 2005 by the Philadelphia Eagles after he spent the entire 2004 season on their practice squad. Strojny was originally selected in the seventh-round of the 2004 NFL Draft with the 203rd selection overall by the New York Giants before being released on final cut-downs.
The 6-7, 327-pound product of Duke University started 43-of-46 career games at left tackle for the Blue Devils. A native of Wrentham, MA, Strojny is in his first accredited season in the NFL under the NFL's guidelines and thus eligible for the practice squad appointment.
