One of the most prized gems of the New York Jets’ undrafted free-agent class has moved to greener pastures.

According to latest NFL Transaction ReportLinebacker DQ Thomas has joined the Green Bay Packers on their practice team.

The former Memphis product originally entered the league by signing a deal with Gang Green after not giving his name.

On the surface, the Jets lacked depth and star power in their linebacking corps as they entered the offseason.

They had veteran CJ Mosley coming back and the workforce was really high on Quincy Williams. Beyond that, however, there weren’t many options that made you feel great.

That led to plenty of speculation that the Jets might consider either signing a sexy free-agent option or even picking a linebacker who ranks pretty high in the 2022 NFL draft.

The Jets actually chose not to do either of those things.

Instead, they patiently waited until the draft was complete to make their big swing

It was widely expected that Thomas would give his name in April, but it never happened. This made him a very attractive option for a bevy of teams bidding for his services.

Ultimately, the Jets were able to convince him to come to New York with a pitch built around a path to game time and a big check.

Per Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, Gang Green handed out a $130,000 UDFA contract.
