In a move that was much expected after adding Nate Herbig, the Jets have let go of guard Greg Van Roten.
We've claimed OL Nate Herbig and released OL Greg Van Roten.

The move will save the Jets $3.5 million against the cap after getting Herbig for $2.4 million, resulting in net saving of $1.4 million. Seizing the opportunity to get younger and better for a cheaper price was a no-brainer for Joe Douglas.
Van Roten started 23 games over two seasons with the Jets but was benched mid-season in favor of Laurent Duvernay-Tardif.
