The Jets signed LB Ricky Sapp to the active roster from the practice squad on Thursday, the team announced.

Sapp, a fifth-round pick of the Eagles in 2010, missed his entire rookie season after being placed on injured reserve. He joined the Jets' practice squad last October and was promoted to the active roster before the regular-season finale.

Sapp has been on the practice squad since Sept. 11 and has not played in an NFL game. The Jets also re-signed S Antonio Allen, a seventh-round pick in April, to the practice squad.
