Jets Start Making Cuts, Keep up Right Here

Having to trim their roster to 53 players by 4pm tomorrow, the Jets have started letting go of the 27 players required.  None of these moves are official at this point in time, but we’ll provide updates as those on the beat let us know who has made the cut.

Connor Hughes of The Athletic is reporting that the team has cut wide receiver Lawrence Cager who scored a touchdown in last week’s pre-season finale.  Look for Cager as a possible practice squad option if unclaimed.

Also let go was second-year cornerback Lamar Jackson and safety Bennett Jackson.

The Bennett Jackson move was reportedly made to create a spot on the roster for newly acquired defensive end Shaq Lawson.

Safety JT Hassell who came on strong with some big plays late in the pre-season apparently didn’t do enough to hang around as Tom Pelissero reports Hassell has been let go.

Brian Costello of the New York Post is reporting the release of defensive lineman Aaron Adeoye and guard Corey Levin.

Rich Cimini of ESPN says Gang Green has also let go of defensive ineman Jeremiah Valoaga.  While he didn’t make the roster, Valoaga looked good enough at times to assume he’ll catch on elsewhere.

According to the Folks at the Jet Press, quarterback Josh Johnson has been let go.
