The Jets have made more roster moves as detailed below:
#Jets are releasing OL Adam Pankey. A candidate to return on practice squad. He was on their practice squad most of the 2022 season.— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) August 28, 2023
The #Jets are releasing veteran WR Alex Erickson, per source. Erickson was a preseason standout, catching two TD passes in Saturday's finale.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) August 28, 2023
The #Jets are waiving S Trey Dean and LB Sam Eguavoen, per source.— Zack Rosenblatt (@ZackBlatt) August 28, 2023
Both are expected to have spots on the practice squad — if Dean clears waivers. I thought Dean showed enough to earn a spot on the 53, but still could come back onto it at some point.
(@uSTADIUM first on Dean…
The #Jets also waived UDFA rookie LB Claudin Cherelus, per source. Another practice squad candidate.— Zack Rosenblatt (@ZackBlatt) August 28, 2023
We've placed CB Jimmy Moreland on IR and released OL Greg Senat, LB Pita Taumoepenu and LB Nick Vigil.— New York Jets (@nyjets) August 28, 2023
Here's what our tracker currently looks like. We'll repost this in the morning...
Tomorrow is the deadline, with cuts required by 4:00pm ET. In the past, we've seen the Jets get the job done early sometimes but we've also seen them not even announce the cuts until after the deadline, so keep checking back to JetsFix for updates and rumors.
Many of these players will return to the 16-man practice squad once they clear waivers tomorrow and a few may revert to short term injured reserve at that time too. However, the Jets will also be closely watching the waiver wire for potential claims or practice squad additions so use the comments thread to share news of cuts from other teams.
Also, don't be surprised if one or two veterans are released today and re-signed tomorrow so that players can be moved to short term injured reserve.
We'll keep updating these depth charts every time a move is rumored from now until the deadline.
Things to note:
The depth chart was lifted from the latest version on the Jets official site and may not reflect reality.
The color coding is as follows:
Green = Players we believe are roster locks
Yellow = Players we expect to be cut
Red = Players that have reportedly been cut
Purple = (Significantly) injured or suspended players
We will work on the assumption that the kicker (Greg Zuerlein), punter (Thomas Morstead) and long snapper (Thomas Hennessy) will not be cut, so we won't update an image for specialists. Obviously we'll let you know if this changes.
