Leave it to the New York Jets to foul up a simple waiver claim.
The J-E-T-S claimed Bruce Ellington off waivers from the San Francisco 49ers on Friday, but somehow they misidentified him on their social media post to indicate as much.
Here was one follower’s brilliant reply.
That’s not Bruce ellington!!

He’s right, because Ellington has never played for the Arizona Cardinals.
But eventually the Jets got it right.
OK, one more time…
