This caps what will be remembered as one of the worst weeks of Whitehead’s career as he goes from the NFC-leading Dallas Cowboys to the Jets, who are expected to have one of the worst rosters in the league.
Whitehead was cut by the Cowboys on Monday after a warrant was issued for his arrest on a charge of shoplifting in Virginia. However, the warrant was rescinded when police determined they had the wrong man.
The 25-year-old had flight records proving he was not in Virginia at the time of the charge, but, according to his agent, the Cowboys did not believe his innocence.
Whitehead also had his dog kidnapped and had to pay to get it back earlier this month.
