Jets sign Colts G Hicks

The Jets filled a roster spot Tuesday, signing undrafted rookie G Hayworth Hicks from the Colts' practice squad. Hicks announced it on his Twitter account.

Hicks, formerly of Iowa State, will be on the Jets' 53-man roster, giving them 10 offensive linemen. Hicks is 6-foot-3, 336 pounds, the kind of size that Tony Sparano covets in his "gap" blocking scheme.
