Here's an unexpected bombshell from Adam Schefter on twitter:
Another roster surprise: Jets are planning to release veteran LB David Harris, sources tell ESPN. Was going into 11th season.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) June 6, 2017
With this move, Demario Davis and Darron Lee will now presumably be the projected starters. The Jets will save over $6 million in cap space.
In 10 seasons with the Jets, Harris missed just six games and led the team in tackles eight times. Long snapper Tanner Purdum is now the longest tenured Jet.
