The Jets announced the final three roster moves required to get down to the 53 man limit this afternoon. Jace Amaro and Dee Milliner were waived and Breno Giacomini was placed on the PUP list. It ends a disappointing Jets career for both players who were selected early in the NFL draft (Milliner 1st round 2013 – Amaro 2nd round 2014). The moves are a bit of a surprise because the Jets aren’t deep at Tight End and they seem to have a need at CB behind Darrelle Revis.
Sheldon Richardson has a one-week roster exemption because of his one game suspension. The team will have to make another roster move when they bring him back.
