The New York Jets have signed cornerback Ras-I Dowling to a reserve-future deal.
Dowling was a second-round draft pick in 2010 by the New England Patriots. His early struggles led to his release this past preseason.
Dowling played his college ball at Virginia, where he was named a second-team All-American in 2010.
Since being cut by New England, Dowling worked out for the Houston Texans and Kansas City Chiefs before being signed to the Jets' practice squad in October.
