The Jets signed FB Lex Hilliard on Tuesday and waived WR Patrick Turner.
Hilliard spent three seasons with the Dolphins' active roster from 2009-11. He played in two games last season for the Patriots and re-joined them on Sept. 4 but was waived on Sept. 19.
Hilliard has rushed for 130 yards in 48 games and has four total touchdowns. He provides insurance at fullback for John Conner, who has a hamstring injury.
Turner re-joined the Jets last month and has appeared in two games this season, but does not have a catch.
