A very curious announcement in Jets land this afternoon, courtesy of our favorite GM, Mike Tannenbaum.

This afternoon, the Jets announced the re-acquisition of WR Jason Hill. He was cut just before the game against the Dolphins. If you recall, he was signed by the Jets on October 3rd, playing in three games, catching 2 passes for 15 yards and one touchdown before getting released by the team just before the Dolphins game at MetLife. It seems that Mike Tannenbaum is getting accustomed to this “revolving door” with players on this team.

The move to make room for Hill was even more curious. To make room, the Jets released rookie safety Antonio Allen. Allen, the Jets seventh round pick in this year’s draft, had gotten more playing time of late, signed off of the practice squad on October 12th. In three games, Allen contributed two tackles, one sack, and a fumble recovery on special team.

Interesting to see the Jets release a guy that was clearly an asset to the youth movement on defense. Not to mention the fact that Hill represents the continual revolving door of players with this team. Odd, just odd.
