6. Breshad Perriman, WR

Breshad Perriman spent just one season with the Jets, starting 12 games for the team in 2020. Perriman was ultimately underwhelming in Adam Gase's offense, finishing with just 30 catches for 505 yards and three touchdowns.

The former first-round pick re-signed with the Buccaneers after leaving the Jets, but he's hauled in just 20 catches over the last two years. Perriman was signed by the Colts in June but was unable to make the final roster.

The soon-to-be 30-year-old is once again searching for a new team.

5. Keelan Cole, WR

Another wide receiver to spend only one season with the Jets, Keelan Cole started a career-high 11 games for Gang Green in 2021. Cole finished the year with just 28 catches for 449 yards and a touchdown.

Cole spent last season with the Las Vegas Raiders, where he hauled in 10 catches for 141 yards and a touchdown. He re-signed with the Raiders in March but was released as part of final roster cuts.

4. Blessuan Austin, CB

Blessuan Austin looked like a potential building block for the Jets following an impressive rookie season in 2019. He returned and started 10 games the following season before he was surprisingly waived in the summer of 2021.

Austin appeared in 11 games for the Seattle Seahawks that season but hasn't played since. He was unable to make the Denver Broncos roster in 2022 and spent less than two weeks with the Atlanta Falcons this summer before he was released. His NFL career might be nearing its end.
