The Jets decided ditch RB Knile Davis in favor of RB C.J. Spiller, with whom they are reportedly working out a contract, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.
Apparently, New York was in talks with Spiller already but hadn't confirmed the deal completely, and wanted to make sure they didn't miss out on Davis if he cleared waivers. (Or, alternately, they used Davis as a potential bluff on Spiller accepting their contract terms.) So the Jets claimed Davis and then waived him after locking down Spiller to a deal, which will probably be processed on the NFL transaction wire Wednesday.
