Jets sign DT Muir

The New York Jets signed defensive tackle Daniel Muir while placing linebacker Josh Mauga on injured reserve Wednesday.

Muir is a five-year NFL veteran who started 26 games over three seasons with Indianapolis from 2009-11. The 29-year-old was brought in with the Jets dealing with injuries to both starting nose tackle Sione Pouha (back) and backup Kenrick Ellis (knee).

"He's a former Colt, a former Packer, a guy that has some experience," said Jets head coach Rex Ryan. "We're excited to have him."

Muir broke into the league with Green Bay in 2007 and re-joined the Packers this spring, but was released during final roster cuts.

Mauga, one of New York's top special teams players, tore his pectorals during the team's 23-17 loss to Houston on Monday.
