The Jets are down to the 75-man roster maximum after they waived/injured safety Dion Bailey, defensive lineman Jake Ceresna, and RB Romar Morris.
Bailey, claimed off waivers from the Seahawks last September, appeared in five games with the Jets last season and recorded with 22 tackles. Ceresna, a Cortland product, had 14.5 sacks in college and hooked on with the Jets in August. Morris, a UNC product, impressed at the Jets’ rookie minicamp and earned a contract in May.
With today’s moves, the Jets get to stave off their tough decision at quarterback for a few more days. Reportedly, the Jets have received some “soft” trade interest in Geno Smith. If the Jets can parlay the second-round pick into a future draft choice, that could painlessly solve their logjam.
