    Jets Officially Let Gholston Go, Hartsock Cut As Well

    posted by: Site Admin | 0 comments | Jets Player Release

    LB/DE Vernon Gholston, arguably the biggest bust in the Jets' history, has been released by the Gang Green. Gholston, 24, was selected at #6 overall in the 2008 NFL Draft and expected to become the dominant pass-rusher that the Jets had not had since they traded DE John Abraham to the Falcons. It didn't take long, however, to realize that Gholston just wasn't the player the Jets hoped he would be. Despite being a projected started in the 2008 season, Gholston did not start a single game and recorded just 13 tackles (8 solo). The following two seasons weren't much better, as Vernon still hasn't registered a single sack in the NFL.

    The New York Jets filled an obvious void today, as they signed TE Ben Hartsock to back up TE Dustin Keller. Hartsock, 6'4", 264 lbs, is a 6-year veteran who has played for Indianapolis, Tennessee and Atlanta. He has started in 26 games in his career (56 games total) and caught 27 passes for 273 yards. Hartsock was released yesterday by the Falcons and the Jets were among at least 6 teams interested in his services. He signed a 1-year deal worth $1.275M and will be used primarily as a blocker. The Gang Green waived P Glenn Pakulak to fit Hartsock on their 75-man roster.
