Update: Read the official release from the New York Jets on signing Jonah Trinnaman

The life of an undrafted free agent is anything but certain, as former BYU WR Jonah Trinnaman is finding out firsthand. Trinnaman was initially signed by the Arizona Cardinals back on April 28, but was cut from the roster this week. Shortly after the cut, the speedster was invited to work out for both the New York Jets and Green Bay Packers. The Jets must have liked what they saw, because they have signed Trinnaman, according to a tweet Tuesday night from NFL Agent Evan Brennan (see below).

Intriguingly enough, the Packers wanted to audition Trinnaman at cornerback -- a position where BYU Football Coach Kalani Sitake said Trinnman could certainly excel. Sitake even admitted to trying to get Trinnaman to switch positions a few times (that speed could definitely kill at corner, if you ask us). It is unclear just yet what Trinnaman’s role with the Jets will be, Cougar fans can only hope that it will stick this time around.

There are no other former Cougars on the Jets’ roster. Trinnaman came to BYU as a transfer for Snow College and played on the team in 2016 and 2017, hauling in one TD pass, along with some really memorable long balls — utilizing that well known and sought after speed of his. Here’s to hoping Trinnaman will still be with the Jets come fall!
