Jets Waive Rashard Robinson; Two Others

Rashard Robinson JN

The New York Jets have announced that they have waived WR Stacy Coley, CB Rashard Robinson and DL Charles Tapper. 

The biggest name in that group is Rashard Robinson. Mike Maccagnan traded a 5th round draft pick to the 49ers for Robinson in 2017. Th 49ers selected him in the 4th round of the 2016 draft. With size and speed, 6′ 2” – 4.49 \ 40 time, the original hope was that Todd Bowles and Kacy Rodgers could turn Robinson around. Gregg Williams and company must be less than impressed if they don’t even want Robinson to be part of the training camp roster.

As for the other players

Coley signed a reserve/future contract with the Jets in January after appearing in seven total games the past two seasons with the Vikings and Giants. Originally a seventh-round draft pick in 2017, the 6’0″, 195-pounder totaled 166 receptions for 2,218 yards and 20 touchdowns at Miami (FL).

A fourth-round pick of the Cowboys in 2016, the 6’3”, 270-pound Tapper appeared in two games with Dallas in 2016-17. In four seasons at Oklahoma, Tapper racked up 15.5 sacks and 26.5 stops for loss. He inked a reserve/futures deal with the Jets in January.
