The first cut day has come and gone, as all roster had to be down to the maximum of 75 by yesterday afternoon. As there were a lot of extra guys in camp with the 90 player maximum, there weren’t very many players of interest that were released. But there was one. And he is from the enemy, and the Jets need this guy.

The Jets clearly have a depth problem at wide receiver. They have Santonio Holmes, who is clearly their number one guy. Behind that, as we have discussed at length, here and in other places, that there is a lot of unproven talent as you go down the depth chart. There are guys that have a lot of potential, ie Stephen Hill. But, guys like him, Patrick Turner, and Chaz Schilens, have just that, potential. They are young, or in Schilens’ case, have been injured. We just don’t know what they are going to be, and to be a great team, you need proven guys.

Then we find out that Jabar Gaffney was released by the Patriots yesterday. Here is a guy that the Jets should make a big play for. We’ll talk about it on the next page.
