Mosley was set to enter his second year with the Jets. He only played 2 games last season for New York, recording 9 tackles and returning an interception for a touchdown before he went down with a season-ending groin injury.
Mosley was the No. 17 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. He spent the 2014-2018 seasons with the Baltimore Ravens before heading to the Jets last season.
