We knew the Jets would have to make some moves after they were rumored to have agreed to terms with nine undrafted free agents. Here are those moves:
We have placed WR Quincy Enunwa and WR Josh Bellamy on Reserve/PUP.— New York Jets (@nyjets) May 5, 2020
We have also waived DE Charles Tapper, RB Jalin Moore, CB Kyron Brown and WR Keon Hatcher.
Enunwa's chances of playing this season seemed remote after he missed almost all of last year with a neck injury. Bellamy wasn't likely to make the team anyway but the team couldn't release him to save a few million dollars of cap space because he was still rehabbing his own season-ending injury from last year.
Tapper and Moore spent all of last season on the non-football injury list and Brown started one game before also ending up on injured reserve. Hatcher, a futures signing, never got a chance to practice with the Jets other than the two weeks he spent on the practice squad at the end of last year.
The Jets have not yet officially announced any of the undrafted free agent signings or today's reported Frank Gore signing.
