  • Gang Green release Darryl Roberts

    The Jets released CB Darryl Roberts, who signed a 3-year $18M contract with the team last March. Roberts started in 10 games last year and looked pretty abysmal for the most part.

    The Jets continued purging their expensive veterans today, as they cut MLB David Harris and WR Eric Decker.
