Jets Cut Bruce Campbell, Six Others

The Jets have started slimming down their roster, as Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports that the team has cut seven players today (via Twitter):

The notable name here is Campbell, who has had a tumultuous career since entering the league in 2010. The former fourth-rounder spent two season with the Raiders before being traded to the Panthers in the Mike Goodson trade. He was waived by the team around this time last year and caught on with the Redskins in March. However, that deal was voided after he failed his physical, and he ultimately signed with the Jets earlier this month.

Also of note is the release of punter Jacob Schum. The release of Schum would lead many to assume that Ryan Quigley has won the punter job.’s Rich Cimini warns that it may be too early to make that assumption, saying the release doesn’t indicate that Quigley “is in the clear just yet” (via Twitter).

Patriots Release Isaac Sopoaga

4:43pm: The Pats have officially released Sopoaga, along with offensive lineman Markus Zusevics, the team announced today. Zusevics was on a minimum-salary deal and his release won’t affect the club’s cap, but New England should save $2.5MM with the release of Sopoaga.

2:46pm: The Patriots have informed defensive tackle Isaac Sopoaga that he will be released, tweets’s Mike Reiss.

The Patriots acquired Sopoaga, 32, in October via a trade with the Eagles. It was a low-risk move for the Pats, who got the veteran and a sixth-round pick in exchange for a fifth-round selection. Statistically, it was Sopoaga’s weakest season in years as he registered just eight tackles and one sack.
