The New York Jets announced Tuesday that they’ve placed TE Jerome Cunningham on waivers and signed RB Romar Morris to a contract.

Morris, one of the 22 tryout players at the Jets’ recent rookie minicamp, is a 5’9″, 190-pound back out of North Carolina. He played in 50 games with 13 starts over his four seasons with the Tar Heels. For his career he had 213 carries for 1,024 yards (4.8 yards/carry) and 12 touchdowns and added 54 receptions for 499 yards (9.2 yards/catch) and two TDs.

The team released Jerome Cunningham in a corresponding move. The team claimed Cunninham off the waivers a few weeks ago from the Giants.
