The 25-year-old back was called up from the Cleveland practice squad.
The Jets jettisoned McGuire during final cuts after two seasons. McGuire compiled 591 yards and four TDs on 180 carries and 36 receptions for 370 yards and two more scores with Gang Green. With the additions of Le'Veon Bell and Ty Montgomery this offseason, McGuire was the clear odd man out in New York.
Monday night the running back will face his former team in primetime from the visitor's sideline.
