Jets release Robert Malone, sign Ryan Quigley

The Jets have released punter Robert Malone. They have signed Ryan Quigley, who was in camp with the team.

Quigley was released by the Jets on August 26.

Welp.  How’s that for timing?

It’s worthless to invest much emotional energy into a punter, but this move seems rather abrupt despite Malone’s inconsistent game against the Patriots.  Some of the reporters have already tweeted that it was Ryan Quigley who was the better punter this summer, but I anecdotally remember Quigley’s shanks standing out more than Malone’s short punts.  So, I am very curious to see how Quigley performs this weekend against the Bills who seem to have a good-to-average return game every year.
