Jets Waive RB John Griffin, Claim RB Jeremy Stewart


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.
