Gholston has been a major disappointment. On a Jets defensive stat sheet that's 23 players long, he's one from the bottom in tackles this year with one solo and four assists. He has zero sacks and one pressure. He has 11 special-teams tackles.
Gholston left Ohio State a year early to enter the draft. He was a pass-rushing specialist as a defensive end and projected as a 3-4 outside linebacker in the NFL.
He dazzled scouts with his physique and measurables at the NFL combine and blew them away at his pro day in Columbus, Ohio. The Jets gave him a contract with $21 million in guarantees.
Here are the rest of the inactives from Sunday's only AFC East showdown:
RB Xavier Omon
CB Jabari Greer
CB Dustin Fox
New York Jets
