A tough break for a fan favorite at Jets camp.
The Jets have released RB John Griffin. A fan favorite, as he is a very cordial player, especially on Twitter(@FlightPhase), he was a guy a lot of us were pulling for, but he was dealing with a high ankle sprain. We’re sorry to see him go, and hope we see him again.
In a related move, the Jets signed RB Jeremy Stewart from Stanford, who was put on waivers by Philadelphia.
Alan has been a passionate Jets fan since 1985. Obviously, that means he is a glutton for punishment, as he has suffered through many Jets disappointments. He remembers Mark Gastineau's late hit in the 1986 AFC Divisional Playoff game like it was yesterday. There have been many more failures than successes, but through it all, Alan has remained true to the Gang Green. He has been blogging for the Jets on various websites for the past 5-6 years. He lives and breathes the NY Jets all year round, and is committed to bringing the Jets passion to "The Jet Press" on a daily basis. Alan has also been recently named to the Pro Football Writers Association. Like what you read? Hit him up on twitter at @thejetpress
