Here is a running list of Jets rumors and roster moves. These will be updated all afternoon and evening. RB Daryl Richardson, LB AJ Edds,WR Stephen Hill, TE Chris Pantale, DL Zach Thompson, RB Alex Green, QB Tajh Boyd, S Rontez Miles, DL Tevita Finau, OL Brent Qvale, CB Dimitri Patterson and CB Johnny Patrick are officially cut, according to the team’s Twitter account (@nyjets). In addition, according to the team’s website the final cuts are QB Matt Simms, WR Clyde Gates, OL Caleb Schlauderaff, DL Kerry Hyder, LB Troy Davis, LB Garrett McIntyre, CB Brandon Dixon and CB Jeremy Reeves. Antwan Barnes has been moved to the PUP list, freeing up a roster spot and having him eligible to return Week 6. The cuts are listed here.

It has been reported that Greg Salas, Dalton Freeman and Ben Ijalana  have made the roster. However, remember that waiver claims are awarded at noon tomorrow and making it today does not guarantee you a spot tomorrow.

Antwan Barnes will start the season on the PUP list, I’m told. #nyj

A surprise cut off of the bat.

Here’s a surprise: I’m told Daryl Richardson is being released. #nyj

A number of running backs have already been cut from other clubs so the Jets could still be in the market for a 4th running back. Lachey Seastrunk of the Redskins, and Henry Josey of the Eagles who torched the Jets would be decent options.

The Jets cut AJ Edds, who I thought would make the roster for his coverage skill.

A move that surprises me: I’m told #Jets have released LB A.J. Edds, who had a terrific camp.

Jeremiah George beats out Edds. George had a very good final preseason game and his long-term potential trumps Edds.

Johnny Patrick made no impact and was injured in the final preseason game so his cut here is not a surprise.

The Jets have released CB Johnny Patrick, according to a source. #nyj

According to Dennis Waszak of the Associated Press Greg Salas, Ben Ijalana and Dalton Freeman have unofficially made the roster.

So far, UNOFFICIAL for #Jets for 53-man roster: IN- Salas, Ijalana, Freeman. OUT- Edds, Patrick, DRichardson.

The end of a very disappointing career with the Jets is near because according to Bob Glauber of Newsday, Stephen Hill will be traded or released shortly.

Looks like Jets WR Stephen Hill will be traded or released shortly. Cleveland may be interested.

Dion Lewis could be a 4th running back candidate for the Jets.

If #Jets did cut Daryl Richardson, look for them to try and add Dion Lewis, familiar w/ Marty, as @DrewfromJersey pointed out

— Chris Nimbley (@Cnimbley) August 30, 2014

It looks like it will happen. Hill has played himself off of the roster.

The Jets will waive WR Stephen Hill, according to a source #nyj

— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) August 30, 2014

The team has officially released Hill, according to Bob Glauber of Newsday.

No trade for Jets WR Stephen Hill. Team has released him, per source. 2012 second-round pick down the drain.

— Bob Glauber (@BobGlauber) August 30, 2014

As expected Alex Green will be cut, according to Seth Walder of the New York Daily News.

Jets are releasing RB Alex Green, per source. #nyj

According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News Zach Thompson and Chris Pantale have been cut.

Jets released Pantale and Thompson too, I’m told. I’d suspect they’d be back on the practice squad. #nyj

— Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) August 30, 2014

Tajh Boyd cut, according to Jake Steinberg (@steiny31). Expect him to be on the practice squad tomorrow.

Steiny with some breaking news “@Steiny31: #Jets have released Tajh Boyd, per source.”

The Jets confirm a few cuts.

We’re confirming the release of WR Stephen Hill, TE Chris Pantale and DL Zach Thompson.

DL Tevita Finau was cut, according to his agent David Canter.

Agent David Canter tweeted his client, Tevita Finau, has been released by the #Jets.

Kristian Dyer reports that Dimitri Patterson will make the roster today. I still wouldn’t expect him to survive waiver wire claims on Sunday.

Hearing from league source that Dimitri Patterson will likely make the Jets roster. #Nyjets#nyj

— Kristian Dyer (@KristianRDyer) August 30, 2014

Very surprising to see Rontez Miles cut today. Hopefully he returns to the practice squad tomorrow. Yes his skill set is similar to Allen, Pryor and Landry but I still think he earned his spot over Bush.

Rontez Miles has been released but I’m fairly certain he can be signed back to practice squad if he clears waivers #Jets

— Chris Nimbley (@Cnimbley) August 30, 2014

Brent Qvale was cut according to Kimberley Martin of Newsday.

Brent Qvale has been released, but the hope is he’ll end up on PS, I’m told #jets — Kimberley A. Martin (@KMart_LI) August 30, 2014

According to Pro Football Talk Dimitri Patterson has been cut ending his tumultuous tenure with the Jets.

RT @ProFootballTalk: CB Dimitri Patterson’s suspension ends early. Jets cut him.
