Report: Jets to Cut Burgess & Harrison

Jonotthan Harrison

Roster cut down day is here, the Jets have to get the roster down to 53 players by 4pm. Two names are being reported as early cuts and they are both surprising.

Linebacker James Burgess and Center / Guard Jonatthan Harrison who were both starters last season will not make the initial 53 man roster, according to several reports.

The Harrison move was unexpected because he seemed to be a lock as a backup. Brian Costello gives some insight into what Joe Douglas may have been thinking.

Burgess played well down the stretch last season and seemed to be a lock as a backup this year. Neville Hewitt and Blake Cashman are rumored to be the starters and Patrick Onwuasor is out for several weeks. One possible scenario has Onwuasor going on short term I.R. and the team could look to bring back Burgess after that.

We will have updates on the rest of the cuts and moves as they are announced.
