The Jets have made another roster move today:

The Jets must be about to bring someone else in. The team has worked out several players this week, including Jeremy Kerley and at least two tight ends. However, releasing Howsare to bring in another receiver would mean they had eight wide receivers and no fullbacks.
Earlier in the offseason, running backs coach Stump Mitchell had said that the Jets "...will have a fullback, and he will be productive in this offense"
"We're trying to be somewhat of a west coast offense where there are times where you use the fullback," he added. "I'm excited about that position. It will not be deterrent."
We'll update you later when the team confirms the corresponding move.
