If the Jets wanted to keep him, they would have needed to activate him to the 53 man roster. The team poaching him (Steelers) need to add him to the 53 man roster , he can't go to their practice squad as a lateral move. 

But he doesn't belong to us then.  It's basically a free agent pool.  All we get is that he practices with us?  But teams would be signing these guys the week before playing us if that practice was anything meaningful, no?

I hear you but let's not forget that this is the same CS that started Flacco over MW and didn't let Bam Knight see the field until a couple of weeks ago.

diff scenario with QB's and Zachenberg getting hurt right before start of season ... Bam wasn't needed until a couple weeks ago, to his credit he has probably shown more in games than expected.

either way, still trusting the CS staff -- biggest ? is WTF haven't or can't they get Moore rolling, but as we are seeing it seems more QB

It's not just a FA pool because they can be elevated to play a few games a year and are practicing with the team.  Otherwise, you get guys showing up off a bus and having to play without knowing the scheme.  To poach a guy, they have to sign him to their active roster where he will have to remain for a certain period of time.

I think they like Marshall and they liked Pinnock.  OTOH, they liked Adams better at DB and have not had a ton of injuries at DB or DT.  They are stacked at those positions and I don't think you guys can complain about the performance of the D.
