Jets ink guard, promote Bauer to replace Clinkscales


After signing a couple outsiders Friday, the Jets promoted an insider.

Gang Green, which reportedly inked longtime Dolphins safety Yeremiah Bell Friday, added an undrafted free agent guard named Terrence Campbell to its roster. Campbell was a sixth-year senior who redshirted twice at South Carolina -- once as a true freshman and again as a junior for medial reasons.

Campbell is a project depth signing, but his presence won't hurt among a group that lacks many capable backups.

The Jets also promoted longtime college scout Jeff Bauer to the position of Director of College Scouting. He'll fill the void left by former vice president of college scouting Joey Clinkscales, who departed for a job with the Raiders.

According to, the Jets also added former Colts scout Kevin Kelly to its staff.
