The New York Jets have waived defensive lineman Matt Kroul. The announcement was made by general manager Mike Tannenbaum.
Kroul (6'3", 300) played six games with the Jets this season, recording two tackles. He originally joined the Jets as an undrafted free agent on May 1, 2009, and spent last season on the practice squad. A 2008 semifinalist for the Draddy Trophy while at Iowa, Kroul set a school record by starting 50 consecutive games. He recorded 238 tackles, seven sacks and one interception during his college career.
