Jets announce 15 cuts
By Rich Cimini
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- The Jets released the names of 15 cuts Friday before practice. There were no surprises, as all of the names were previously reported.
The roster is down to 60, which means seven more have to go by 9 p.m.
One draft pick was waived -- OT Robert Griffin, a sixth-round choice from Baylor. If the Redskins claim him, he can reunite with his former college teammate, the other Robert Griffin (wink, wink).
The rest of the cuts: WR Joseph Collins, LB Marcus Dowtin, G Fred Koloto, G Matt Kroul, P Spencer Lanning, CB LeQuan Lewis, TE Tarren Lloyd, S D'Anton Lynn, CB Julian Posey, DE Jay Richardson, WR Eron Riley, LB Brett Roy, QB Matt Simms and NT Martin Tevaseu.
Barring any surprises, the final seven cuts are likely to be WR Royce Pollard (injured), CB Donnie Fletcher, LB Ricky Sapp (injured), OT Paul Cornick, DT Damon Harrison, OT Dennis Landolt (injured) and TE Hayden Smith.
