Jets 53 Man Roster Announced

The Jets made their moves to get down to 53 men on the roster today.  They made 2 trades today as well.  In addition to the trade of Dwight Lowery, the Jets also acquired Packers rookie offensive lineman Caleb Schlauderaff to provide some much needed depth, caused by the Robert Turner injury and Vladimir Ducasse’s struggles.

Despite the activity, there is always the potential for more.

“That’s always a possibility,” Rex Ryan said Saturday night. “If we think there’s an opportunity to upgrade our football team… we have a history of doing that and we’ll certainly look at all possibilities.”

There is no intent to put Gregg McElroy, Robert Turner or Logan Payne on injured reserve.  The McElroy injury leaves the team with only 2 quarterbacks, and Rex Ryan did indicate the Jets will try to add one more quarterback before the beginning of the season.  Here is the list of cuts, and the 53 man roster, as it stands right now:

Players Waived:
TE Josh Baker, Northwest Missouri State
