New York Jets re-sign CB Ellis Lankster

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- A day after waiving cornerback Leon McFadden, the New York Jets announced Friday they have re-signed cornerback Ellis Lankster.

Lankster, 27, played for the Jets from 2011 to 2013. He was cut by the team on Sept. 1.

Lankster provides depth at cornerback, but has also been a solid special teamer with the Jets.
