The Jets today released 10 players and placed four on reserve lists in advance of the NFL's cutdown to 53 active roster players. They need to move 23 more players from their 90-man roster by Saturday at 4 p.m. ET.
Among the cuts were kicker Ross Martin, the first-year man who battled all training camp with veteran K Chandler Catanzaro; LB Spencer Paysinger, who tied for the game high with six tackles against Philadelphia and led the Jets with 174 total plays this preseason; and veteran WRs Chris Harper and Myles White.
WR Quincy Enunwa, who injured his neck at the Green & White practice, TE Chris Gragg, who suffered an ankle injury at the end of a 20-yard catch vs. the Eagles, and LB Corey Lemonier have been placed on Injured Reserve. Rookie CB Jeremy Clark goes to Reserve/Non-Football Injury.
Paysinger was one of those tough cuts that head coach Todd Bowles talked about after thegame. But the six-year pro (four with the Giants, two with the Dolphins) knows the drill. Whatever happened, he said, wouldn't interfere with a family event back in Indianapolis this weekend.
"I actually got my brother's wedding to go to, so that's going to keep my mind off of it," he said.
Paysinger will be the best man for older brother Justin's ceremony.
"Months ago he asked me, when can you be free?" he said. "I told him really the only weekend I'm free in the late summer is this weekend.
"I'll either be here or somewhere else," Paysinger added. "If I get a call, I might have a drink with my brother and talk to my agent. If not, I'll be back here on Monday."
Martin, in his second summer trying to make the Jets' roster, hit four of five field goal tries (2-for-2 vs. Philly). Catanzaro was 2-for-3. Each kicker made a pair of extra points. Catanzaro put all five of his kickoffs in the end zone with four touchbacks. Martin had 11 KOs with eight in the end zone and three TBs.
