Jets Move 22, Get Down to 53-Man Active Roster

Posted Aug 31, 2013

The Jets have made 22 transactions today to get their roster down to the NFL's mandated 53-player limit.

QB Greg McElroy was the biggest name among the players released. McElroy, the seventh-round draft choice in 2011, was released with an injury.

Other veterans released included DT Antonio Garay, WRs Ben Obomanu and Mohamed Massaquoi — two of four wideouts released — and recently signed K Dan Carpenter and T Jason Smith.

Also, RB Mike Goodson was moved from the Active/Non-Football Injury/Illness list to Reserve/Suspended and will not count against our roster for four weeks.

Here is the complete list of 22 transactions to reduce the Jets' active roster from 70 to 53 players, alphabetically by position:

QB (1) — Greg McElroy (released with an injury)

RB (2) — Mike Goodson (Reserve/Suspended), Mossis Madu

WR (4) — Michael Campbell, Mohamed Massaquoi, Ben Obomanu, Zach Rogers
