The Jets have claimed ex-Vikings OT Patrick Brown, ex-Cowboys DT Marcus Dixon and ex-Dolphins WR Patrick Turner, the team announced Sunday. New York also waived WR David Clowney and RB Chauncey Washington and released FB Tony Richardson.

Brown, a 6-5, 310-pound UCF product, entered the league as an undrafted free agent in 2009 with the Panthers. He was a member of the Vikings' practice squad the last 13 weeks and the postseason last year.

Dixon, a 6-4, 295-pound Hampton product, spent his first two seasons on the Cowboys' practice squad after entering the leaguea as an undrafted free agent in 2008.

Turner, a 6-5, 220-pound USC product, was a big disappointment in Miami and had not developed into the big pass-catching target the team envisioned for him when it selected him in the third round of the 2009 draft. He will be reunited with his ex-USC QB Mark Sanchez in New York.

Clowney, a third-year player out of Virginia Tech, was being groomed to take over for special-teams ace Wallace Wright, who departed for Carolina this offseason.

The 38-year-old Richardson, a 16-year NFL veteran and a three-time Pro Bowler, had appeared in 35 games (three postseason) since joining the Jets as an unrestricted free agent in March 2008. He started 20 of those 35 games (including the postseason). Last season, he was part of a ground attack that finished No. 1 in the league, marking the third time in his career he was part of a team that led the league in that category. 

Reports say that the team will sign Washington to the practice squad if he clears waivers.
