Former Whale Branch star Dee Delaney will get another shot at making an NFL roster this season after signing with the New York Jets last week.
Delaney went undrafted in 2018 coming out of the University of Miami, where he played his final collegiate season after three years as a standout defensive back at The Citadel. He signed a free agent deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars and played two games before being claimed off waivers by the Miami Dolphins.
After finishing last season on the Dolphins’ practice squad, Delaney signed a reserve/future deal with Miami in January but was released in May.
The 24-year-old Delaney, listed at 5-foot-11 and 200 pounds, was buried deep on the Jets’ first unofficial depth chart released Monday but will have the chance to work his way up the ladder during the preseason.
