Hazelton was reportedly impressing his coaches at camp before suffering the injury. The release of Hazelton leaves some opportunities for other players looking to become members of the team to step in and make a name for themselves. Hazelton previously played with the San Diego Chargers, Cincinnati Bengals and Tennessee Titans before he was looked at by the Jets.
