Once a fearsome tandem on Nevada's linebacker crew, Josh Mauga and Ezra Butler are once again teammates in New York.
On Thursday, the Jets announced both Mauga and Butler had been signed to future/reserve contracts. Teams are allowed to expand their 2010 rosters to 80 players.
This is the third time Mauga has been signed by the Jets in the past five months.
New York waived him on Dec. 23, two weeks after signing him to its practice squad.
