Jesse Chatman Status
Dave Hutchinson of the Newark Star Ledger reported last night that Jesse Chatman has been waived.
In a stunning move, the Jets released veteran RB Jesse Chatman, who rushed for 93 yards and a touchdown on Thursday night against the Eagles and led the team in rushing this preseason with 164 yards and a touchdown on 51 carries, according to someone with knowledge of the cuts. That person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the cuts aren’t officially announced until Saturday.
Rich Cimini is saying that as per Chatman’s agent Brett Tessler, Chatman has not been waived.
Lots of speculation late Friday night about RB Jesse Chatman. One report said he was released. He was not released, according to his agent, Brett Tessler. However, that doesn’t mean Chatman will be a Jet. Turns out they were showcasing him in Thursday night’s pre-season finale, because I’m hearing he probably will be traded. Not sure about the destination or the compensation, but it could be the Ravens, where he would be reunited with his longtime offensive coordinator, Cam Cameron. The Jets will have an announcement Saturday on Chatman, who rushed for 96 yards against the Eagles.
The cuts will be announced today so we will know what is going on by 4pm. Rich Cimini also had some updated comments that can be found here.
