Jets release Boyd

The Jets have released quarterback Tajh Boyd the team confirmed on Saturday (Walder, Aug. 30). 


Brian Bassett, TheJetsBlog.com

Matt Simms did everything in his power to warrant his status as the team’s third quarterback.  Boyd might have potential, but it will take more time for any NFL team to determine that.  It is clear that Martavis Bryant and Sammy Watkins were much bigger elements than anyone realized over a year ago.

Boyd struggled in camp and during the time he saw in the preseason.  Boyd is a dynamic and charismatic player who has a history of being able to provide a spark during his days at Clemson.  The team might try to get him back onto their team as a developmental player as a member of the practice squad.  I think the Jets would be well served in not giving up on Boyd just yet.

Now, who do we think is inactive Week One?

My bet:

Milliner, Enunwa, Reilly, Ijalana, Dozier, Sudfeld, Barnes

So to me it sounds like:


QB (2): Smith, Vick

RB (4): Ivory, Johnson, Powell, Bohanon

WR (7): Decker, Kerley, Nelson, Salas, Enunwa, Saunders, Hakim,

TE (3): Amaro, Cumberland, Sudfeld

OT (3): Ferguson, Giacomini, Ijalana

OG (4): Colon, Winters, Dozier, Aboushi

C (2): Mangold, Freeman

DE (3): Wilkerson, Richardson, Barnes

DT (3): Harrison, Ellis, Douzable

OLB (5): Coples, Pace, Babin, Enemkpali, Reilly

ILB (4): Harris, Davis, Bellore, George

CB (6): Milliner, Allen, Walls, Wilson, Lankster, Lewis

S (4): Pryor, Landry, Jarrett, Bush

LS (1): Purdum

K (1): Folk

P (1): Quigley

Called Enunwa would make it I think they tried to hide him this pre season. He looks good on st lot of potential

So Campbell, Dixon and Boyd are the only draft picks of Idziks' cut so far...

Wow.  Matt Simms.

Come on Brian. Martavis Bryant is Stephen Hill take two. At least mention Hopkins and Watkins instead of Bryant.

Over the last couple years, Idzik has gotten crazy unlucky with his FA pickups. The stuff that went down with Goodson, Garrard, and now Patterson can simply be attributed to the human element of this whole thing, and bad luck.

Boyd is the first draft pick of Idzik's (2013 and 2014) that he's cut, right?

And there goes Michael Sam.

If they cut Patterson, I don't understand why Patrick also got the axe. Either way, LeQuan Lewis must be a happy man.

Cutting Patterson was a great move.. such a bum, and a joke.

Laron Byrd cut, 10 guys down 15 more to go, right? Idzik said 25 would be cut and then 10 to the PS

@UncleJoesJetFarm Not that bad. Let's say Milliner is out Wk 1, I'm perfectly okay sending Allen, Walls, WIlson, Lankster, and Lewis to deal with Oakland.

I was looking for it. QBs never looked his way when he was on offense. Except once, when Boyd looked at him before throwing that TD pass to the other side of the field. 

I agree. The team made an effort to hide him. Although I would've thought that's only necessary if putting him on the PS. Don't have to hide a guy you're keeping.

@J. Smooth Salas should stay and Dozier too, someone will take Dozier if exposed to being claimed

@boomer 

And Troy Davis too? Are we keeping both IK and Reilly on the 53 then?

@boomer Very risky cutting Simms, if Geno gets hurt how long will Vick last? I think Simms didn't do himself any favors that last preseason game by giving a spotty performance.

@J. Smooth 

Lewis stinks...you gotta figure they are making a couple waiver claims on CB's...

@Marvel_ Idzik runs a tight ship, and he's clearly making a very strong example.

Do you honestly believe Simms would put more points on the board than if we just ran the Wildcat all game?
