Jets' not-so-old gang is dwindling

By Rich Cimini

You've heard this a thousand times: The NFL stands for Not For Long, and that theory certainly applies to the 2010 New York Jets.

With Antonio Cromartie's release Sunday, only 11 players remain from the team that lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC Championship Game (we're including free agents). That total is sure to shrink in the coming days. By the time we reach Week 1, it could be only seven holdovers.

A look at the Gang of 11:

Not going anywhere:

D'Brickashaw Ferguson, left tackle

Nick Mangold, center

David Harris, linebacker

Jeff Cumberland, tight end

Nick Folk, kicker (franchise tag)

Tanner Purdum, long snapper

Kyle Wilson, cornerback

Free agents:

Calvin Pace, linebacker

Vladimir Ducasse, guard/tackle

Likely cap casualties:

Mark Sanchez, quarterback

Santonio Holmes, wide receiver
