The Jets have waived cornerback Leon McFadden, according to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News (on Twitter). McFadden didn’t survive the Browns’ cut down to a 53-man roster and today Gang Green has dropped him from theirs.
This isn’t how many saw things panning out for McFadden, who was the Browns‘ 2013 third-round pick. Even earlier in the offseason, McFadden was projected to have a key role in the Browns’ secondary this season. Instead, he’s on the unemployment line in the midst of Week 2.
In 16 games last season, McFadden saw two starts for Cleveland and registered 13 tackles with one pass deflection.
