Jets Reduce Roster to 53

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.

September 3, 2016 – The New York Jets announced the transactions below. Clubs had to reduce their roster to a maximum of 53 players by 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 3.

I started JetNation in 2005 and have been a New York Jets season ticket holder since graduating from high school. My dream is to see the New York Jets win the Super Bowl. Until then, I will be right here on JetNation writing, dreaming and talking NY Jets football.
