The New York Jets have released right guard Brandon Moore and RB Noah Herron and waived DE Sean Conover. The announcements were made by Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum.
Moore (6'3", 295) originally signed as an undrafted free agent defensive lineman in 2002 and was converted to the offensive line during training camp. He made his regular-season debut for the Jets in late 2003 at left guard. The Gary, Ind., native started 73 consecutive regular-season games at right guard since missing three games in the middle of the 2004 season due to injury.
Herron (5'11", 225) was signed to a reserve/future contract in January. He was selected by the Steelers in the seventh round (244th overall) of the 2005 NFL Draft. He appeared in two games for the Steelers before being waived and signed to Pittsburgh's practice squad. He was signed to Green Bay's active roster on Nov. 30, 2005, appeared in 21 games for the Packers and rushed for 271 yards on 82 attempts (3.3 avg.) and three touchdowns.
Conover (6'5", 275) signed a reserve/future contract with the Jets this month. He originally signed in the NFL with Tennessee as a rookie free agent on May 5, 2006, and was promoted to the Titans' active roster on Nov. 22, 2006. In two seasons with the Titans, he played in 11 games with two starts, totaling 25 tackles, one tackle for loss and two QB pressures. He had stints on the Falcons and Ravens practice squads in 2008.
