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


There's our 53, boys. Let's get it.

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

If Siims was cut it's smart.. we can replace him at any time if geno or vick goes down.

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

Waste of a 6th round pick that could have been geared towards special teams.

Bye Patterson.

Idzik taking some lumps, it is what it is. But eff Patterson.

Word. The Redskins cut Thompson, Royster and Seastrunk. 


Go get one Idzik.

@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.

@JCuratola3 

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?

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

Strange as it might have seemed, that's not unthinkable at this point now that Patterson's gone.

@Disgruntled Jets Fan 

Hard to predict a guy is gonna flake out like that.

Although we have had both Patterson and Goodson do it now. So it definitely needs to stop happening with Idzik's future signings.

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

@juunit @Disgruntled Jets Fan  Idzik has signed some guys with bad attitudes, after Holmes you'd think he would learn to evaluate character better and yes I'm aware that Mike T signed him, thanks

@a57se @juunit


From what I've seen, marginal WR's are dropping like flies, but haven't seen a single corner yet who might be of some help to us.   


Of the three you listed above, only Seastrunk was on a lot of our draft radar, and he disappointed in camp/preseason.   Maybe a PS candidate if both Richardson and Greene are gone gone?

@a57se @juunit 

Having actually watched lots of the preseason games I can say with absolute confidence that the Redskins had better RBs likely to be cut than all 31 other teams and that nobody better will be available. 

juunit

@hazard2012 @a57se @juunit 

Thompson and Royster were drafted in past years.

And Seastrunk really did not disappoint. The Redskins needed versatility with their additional RBs because both Morris and Helu are useless doing anything but running. Seastrunk didn't fill that void, so he was quickly overtaken by Silas Redd even though Silas went undrafted and Seastrunk was a 6th rounder.

@juunit do any of these ex-Wash RBs have KR or other ST potential?

The team may want to keep the 3 game day inactive spots for developmental prospects, rather than a guy who is just a backup, like Richardson.

Keep an eye on the.....ready?....... any WR dropped by the......ready.....they are really stacked.....seriously, really, really stacked......Miami !!!

@a57se @hazard2012 @juunit


Yeah, saw that, and also failed to see Idzik generate any apparent interest.  Maybe he did make a call...but not sure which speaks worse of him...another missed opportunity to address a pressing need or another inability to close a deal.

juunit

@hitchhiker 

Yes. Thompson has returned kicks. Royster has returned punts. Seastrunk got a few reps returning kicks this preseason.

@a57se @juunit 

Unless we go with just 3 RBs. But I think that would be a mistake. Especially if we did it just to carry our crappy FB.

@a57se @juunit @hazard2012 

And what makes you think he can't catch? Because he can. 

I'd prefer Thompson or Royster to him though. They can also block and have better vision as runners.

@NYCPEinGermany @juunit @a57se 

Yeah, Pantale has had it rough. Last year he only really got to play in week 4 and the same happened this year. I thought he made the most of his opportunities, but Sudfeld was above him on the depth chart and he never really got the chance to leapfrog him. 

He is still PS eligible though.

@a57se 

And I've learned there is no discussion possible when the other person hasn't even watched the players in question.

@a57se @juunit 

You have said on multiple occasions that you do not watch the free streams. You have also said that you do not pay the $20 for the NFL.com feeds. That leaves no other options unless you were to go to a bar in the local areas where the games are broadcast. 

You've even said multiple times that you didn't bother to watch the second half of Jets preseason games. 

juunit

@a57se @juunit 

And you are honestly claiming that you watch the second half of Redskins preseason games when you openly admit to not watching the second half of Jets preseason games?

juunit

@a57se @juunit 

Right. The fact is you did not watch the players in question but decided to offer your opinion on them anyway. Despite having nothing of value to say.


Now you're resorting to calling me stupid, desperate, snotty assed and a know it all for calling you out.


You didn't watch them. You don't have a leg stand on. 


Congratulations on knowing how to use a remote.

Oh, the college football expert is going to watch reruns of preseason NFL games instead of watching the first Saturday of college football?

Sure. That's believable. Dig yourself deeper. See if I care.

OK. You've watched Redskins games. In what order did the RBs get into the games?
