Roster News: Mauldin and Luvu among those released as today's cuts being to leak out

Today's cuts are underway with a minor surprise as undrafted rookie Frankie Luvu, who had been on the second unit in preseason, is one of the first names to leak out (via Manish Mehta of the NY Daily News). Mehta also reports that another undrafted rookie, Anthony Wint, has also been released. Both are probably practice squad candidates. Brandon Bryant could be too, as Brian Costello from the NY Post has confirmed his release.

Also, Taylor Bertolet's agent has confirmed that the kicker has been released. Jason Myers will probably make the initial 53 but don't be surprised to see the Jets bring someone else in to compete with or replace him.

UPDATE: Lorenzo Mauldin has also been released, according to his own instagram page.


Deon Simon has also been released, per Mehta.


None of these updated moves are surprising.

Here's the updated state of the roster:

Color coding is as follows:

Green - Players we assume are locks to be on the 53

Yellow - Players who we assume will be cut

Red - Players who have been confirmed as cut or waived/injured

Pink - Players who are suspended on opening day

Blue - PUP list (Rontez Miles is the only eligible player)
