The cuts continue to leak out today with these two being a pair of players who would have made many people's 53-man roster.
The #Jets are waiving S Trey Dean, who impressed in camp, according to his newly hired agents @NessMugrabi and @davidcanter. Dean was second on the team with 24 preseason tackles. Could return to the the practice squad but he’s a candidate to get claimed by another team first.— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) August 28, 2023
#Jets are releasing Zonovan "Bam" Knight, source said. He received some interest on the trade front, which could indicate a claim on Wednesday.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) August 28, 2023
Dean had played well in preseason and looked like he had a good shot of making the team but he didn't have as much of an impact against the Giants. Knight is a victim of a numbers game after the Dalvin Cook signing, with his release perhaps indicating that Izzy Abanikanda is going to be healthy for the opener.
We'll continue to let you know of any releases that get reported and will post our tracker early tomorrow morning.
