The NY Jets have waived DT Martin Tevaseu, a player they were very pleased with during camp. The move to let “MTV” go shows that the organization was impressed with Kenrick Ellis, who had a very solid game last night. Here is the official release from the Jets.
Jets Waive DT Martin Tevaseu, Release T Dennis Landolt from Practice Squad
The New York Jets have waived DT Martin Tevaseu and released T Dennis Landolt from the practice squad. The announcements were made by General Manager Mike Tannenbaum.
Tevaseu (DT/6-2/325/Nevada-Las Vegas/Oakland, CA) made his regular season debut against Miami (10/17/10) after he spent the first five weeks of the season on the practice squad. He initially entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Cleveland Browns last season, before he joined the Jets as a free agent (7/20/10) and appeared in all four preseason games. After he was waived by the Jets (9/4/10), he signed to the practice squad (9/6/10) and spent all 16 regular season, and the first two postseason games there before being signed to the active roster (1/22/11) and earning his NFL debut at Pittsburgh in the AFC Championship Game (1/25/11).
Landolt (T/6-4/306/Penn State/Burlington, NJ) was signed to the practice squad (10/5/11) after being released from the practice squad of the New Orleans Saints (10/1/11). He was signed to the New Orleans practice squad (9/5/11) after he was waived by the Jets (9/3/11). Landolt was signed to a reserve/future contract by the Jets (1/24/11) after he initially joined them as a member of their practice squad (01/12/11). He also spent last season on the practice squads of the New York Giants and San Francisco 49ers. A three-year starter at Penn State, Landolt played right tackle before moving to left tackle his senior season, where he was named first-team All-Big Ten and third-team Associated Press All-American as part of an offensive line that allowed just 17 sacks in 13 games.
