On February 5, 2010, the New York Jets signed Purdum to a three-year contract after incumbent long snapper James Dearth, who was an unrestricted free agent at the time, had a few snaps that were "off the mark" in the 2009 season. Purdum was recommended to the team by former Chiefs and Jets punter Louie Aguiar.
