On this list there are only two players who were drafted in 2014 that were cut by the Jets.  CB Brandon Dixon who had a tough time adjusting under the lights of the preseason and Tajh Boyd needs more refinement before he could be a player that the Jets could justify adding to their 53 man roster.

Of the group, there’s a number of good candidates for the practice squad: Tajh Boyd, Troy Davis, Brandon Dixon,  Tevita Finau, Rontez Miles, Chris Pantale, Johnny Patrick (not sure of eligibility) Jeremy Reeves, Darryl Richardson and Matt Simms.  Of that group, I would not be surprised if about six or seven of that group could see time on the active roster for the Jets this season.

There’s only a few players that I don’t imagine would come back to the Jets at any point.  Dimitri Patterson and Stephen Hill would be on that list.  Will Campbell and Garrett McIntyre might have been as useful to the Jets as he could have been, but with a bunch of young linebackers and receivers who were just drafted, I don’t know that the team will have use for them in the future.

What about former San Diego WR Vincent Brown? Apparently he's a week away from being 100% after experiencing a calf injury all summer. He's 5'11, caught 41 balls last year and lost the numbers game out in San Diego.  At a salary of 645k for 2014 (he was waived injured which means if a team claims him before Sunday at 1PM they acquire his current contract). I would definitely express interest.

What about Derek Cox? He has 13 career interceptions.

Did the Saints release Robert Meachem or not, NFL.com has him as cut but other sources show he made the 53 man roster

Champ Baily is available.

WR Greg Little got released by the Raiders, what do you guys think, he's an Immediate upgrade over Hill and Gates, won't blow you away with his speed, but looks to have reliable hands and will fight for every yard.

Todd Gurley = sick


15 rushes for 198 yards.

The season would be over the sane way it was back then.....I lIke Connor shaw more than simms or boyd....if they really wanted a 3rd qbs I'd go sign him

I always thought Hill came across as if he was doing just fine. Never seemed to acknowledge that he needed to pick it up on the field.

Gotta say I agree with most of these cuts, even Hill and Patterson...

 Daryl Richardson is one cut I have real trouble with however... he maybe could have doubled at FB, trading reps with Tommy Bo....(as well as add depth at RB obviously)

Idzik really dropped the ball, drafted 2 CB's that are injury prone and signed one that was a head case, Cro should play well this year after a year removed from hip recovery, ah well

oh my god. i can't believe this poor guy patterson was released. what an injustice. that man gave his heart and soul to this organization for 7 long weeks. and for what reason? patterson said when he first goy here how good a player he was. for those ungrateful cold callous coaches to cut him like that is an injustice that should be heard from no less an authority that the supreme court.

Any guess who we will bring in to the team until tomorrow noon?

Why didn't we convert hill to cb? He cant catch, fine, thats perfect for a cb.

I can see Jeremy reeves going to the PS. If this guy was two inches taller they'd be comparing him to cro

I can see Rex droolin' over the list of available CB's right now.

@Pablo Bruno

We've already got four of those…

Now somebody with hands who's a burner, we can talk...

Hopefully, Simms will land on the PS

If it gets to a 3rd QB we are in deep trouble anyway. No need to carry a third QB IMO.

@John Ledo  the O line didn't allow a single sack to Geno this preseason, that should help

@lindro88 I got that vibe as well.  He seemed to believe it was his and it was asinine for people to be questioning why he should be concerned.  Not only is he bad on the field but entitled as well.


Reality should adjust some of those sentiments for him I think.

@marcus81 Cro fan here, so yeah I'm inclined to feel remorseful about his release, and am very interested in how he does this year with Arizona..

@marcus81 yes very bad draft by idzik. i don't think he will recover from it

@j_spikett Yeah it's as unbelieveable to me as michael sam being released.  These football teams don't know what they're doing.


Get stephen a. smith on the phone and interwebs so he can defend patterson and lambast the jets for their beligerence.

Stephen Hill covering Tavon Austin, Wes Welker, Brandin Cooks, Brandon Marshall, AJ Green etc etc etc ???????

Lol

You'd never again not appreciate Kyle Wilson

It would be a good idea to make Hill a CB if he was capable of making cuts and could cover a route other than the DEEP fly

Pat d

He can't run routes. What makes you think he can do that running backwards?

dante kaalund
dante kaalund

Cuz his foot work is sloppy and he's stiff prolly would get beat on quick routs cuz of tight hips and he can't locate a ball as aWR sure won't do it as aCB

@jets jerk That list must have crisp creams on top of it

Spitting on it is more like it.  Not much out there.

Maybe we should wait and see how some of these guys turn out before labeling it a bad draft.

Walls isn't that good. I hope Shaub starts or we could be looking at 0-5.

@dante kaalund

Yeah, but anything that gets near him ends up on the ground! 

Not bad, from a certain perspective...

How many baby mama's is the better question....

It isn't like Cro has 21 kids with one woman

It's 21 kids with 21 different women

@williamg1 lmaoo prolly not enough to make the social services all pro team

He was good for one big game a season. Maybe he thought that was enough.

I'm sure he'll catch on somewhere. It will be interesting to see if he needed a change of scenery or is truly a bust. My bet is the latter.

lindro88

That's true. I don't think it was a NY thing. He wasn't harassed by the media or even the fan base. People expected more, but it's not like Hill was a big topic. He just doesn't appear to be a good receiver.
