Greg McElroy has been released, after three years with the Jets. Reports are that he will be signing on with the Bengals to their practice squad. Greg wanted to leave New York with this note, 24 hours after he was let go:

After 24 hours of reflection and thought, I would like to thank the New York Jets and their fans for bringing so much joy to my life over the last two years. Thank you to Rex Ryan, Mike Tannenbaum, and Woody Johnson for allowing me to achieve my lifelong dream of playing Quarterback in the NFL. I would also like to thank John Idzik for his extremely professional approach throughout this time. I do believe that he has a remarkable vision for the organization, and I wish I could’ve been a part of it.

I would like to wish the organization the very best going forward and thank you again for having such a profound impact on my life. I look forward to the next opportunity.

McElroy is a class act, through and through. We wish him the best in whatever he decides to do.
