The New York Jets have waived defensive tackle Martin Tevaseu and released tackle Dennis Landolt from the practice squad. The announcements were made by general manager Mike Tannenbaum.
Tevaseu (6'2", 325) made his regular-season debut against Miami on Monday night after he spent the first five weeks of the season on the practice squad. He entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Cleveland Browns last season before joining the Jets as a free agent July 20 and appearing in all four preseason games.
After he was waived by the Jets on Sept. 4, he was signed to the practice squad two days later and spent all 16 regular-season and the first two postseason games there before being signed to the active roster Jan. 22 and making his NFL debut at Pittsburgh in the AFC Championship Game.
Landolt (6'4", 306) was signed to the practice squad Oct. 5 after being released from New Orleans' practice squad Oct. 1. He was signed to the Saints practice squad Sept. 5 after he was waived by the Jets two days earlier.
Landolt was signed to a reserve/future contract by the Jets on Jan. 24 after he initially joined them as a member of their practice squad Jan. 12. He also spent last season on the practice squads of the New York Giants and San Francisco 49ers.
A three-year starter at Penn State, Landolt played right tackle before moving to left tackle his senior season, where he was named All-Big Ten first team and Associated Press All-America third team as part of an offensive line that allowed 17 sacks in 13 games.
