Jets Cut Roster to 53; Bad Day For Macc’s Picks

mike maccagnan

The NY Jets have announced 38 player moves to get down to the 53 man limit which was required by 4pm today. We had previously posted about the Parry Nickerson trade as well as Eli McGuire and Jachai Polite being cut. The bottom line is this isn’t a good day if you were a Mike Maccagnan draft pick.

Brandon Copeland and Chris Herndon are on the reserved \ suspended list so they don’t count against the roster limit right now. International player Valentine Holmes was waived, he is a practice squad candidate.

The Jets waived both Luke Falk and Davis Webb. It is expected they will try and sign Luke Falk to the practice squad.  Charone Peake was a mild surprise cut, it was thought he would stick around because of his strong special teams play. The team is also moving on from tight end Eric Tomlinson.

You can expect the Jets to be very active on the waiver wire. So more moves should be announced tomorrow. Here are the moves from today, with players grouped by positions:
