The Jets have released safety DeAngelo Smith and linebacker Eddie Jones:
Smith signed as a free agent in April 2012 but was a long shot to make the 53-man roster since he hadn’t seen NFL action since 2009. The addition of safety Yeremiah Bell made Smith expandable as the Jets still have six safeties on their roster.
Jones saw action in one game as a Jet in 2011 but spent most of his time on the Jets and Rams practice squads. He was signed as a reserve/future free agent by the Jets in January 2012.
