9960282-large.jpgJohn Munson/The Star-LedgerMike Tannenbaum and Rex Ryan must pare the Jets' roster down to 53 players by tomorrow afternoon.

The Jets need to pare their roster down to 53 men by 4 p.m. tomorrow. They have already started the process this morning.

In last night's preseason finale against the Eagles, the Jets had 79 players on their roster, after adding CB Isaiah Trufant. We'll keep a tracker of where the roster is at today and tomorrow, compiled from people with direct knowledge of these players' roster status. The people requested anonymity because the team will not announce the roster moves tomorrow.

OL Dennis Landolt, who was on the Jets practice squad during last season, has been cut. He will not be brought back to the practice squad.

LB Joey LaRocque and T Nevin McCaskill will be released, their agent wrote on Twitter.

Receivers Michael Campbell, an Edison native and undrafted free agent out of Temple, and Dan DePalma, a Verona native out of West Chester, have been cut.

Undrafted free agents Eddie Jones, an outside linebacker out of Texas, and Davon Morgan, a safety from Virginia Tech, have been cut. So has DE Lorenzo Washington, who signed a reserve/future contract with the team in January.

Blocking TE Keith Zinger, who signed with the team during camp, has been released.

I thought Eddie Jones 99 looked decent. He will be picked up by another team if hes not put on the practice squad.

From what I've read he'll only be out 6-8 weeks.

McElroy had surgery on his thumb this morning. No timetable on his return yet.

McElroy will go to IR.

Brunell should be cut as soon as we find a better replacement off another teams scrap heap.

If they like him, but don't really have a spot for him, they can hide him for the season on IR. That's what I was getting at. I knew he didn't really have a season ending injury.

Did we ever get any real definitive info on his injury? I'm guessing if it's nothing too major they'll stash him on the PS with the idea being they could call him up later in the year if they so decide. Of the 3 fringe WRs that are left (Turner, Payne, McWhite), I think those are your three guys who will all be hitting the active roster and PS.

If it's that long then I agree, he probably gets IRed, they're not going to waste a spot, active roster or even PS, for a fringe guy for that long. I figured if it were a short term thing they'd throw him onto the PS and decide where to keep him later once he's healthy and practicing, but not for half the season.

Are those all official? Berning fared well last game, I thought they would try and keep him around.

Eddie Jones looked okay, but they are probably keeping the 3 OLBs and there are 12 LBs still left. They aren't keeping him on the practice squad if they can keep whoever they cut out of Bellore, Berning or Satele. I think they like these guys better.

I wonder if they're going to stuff Payne on the IR... ?

Can they PUP him? 6-8 weeks sounds like Turner. If they can PUP them they would have the option of bringing them back if necessary OR IR'ing them later. I'm not sure if they can still do that at this point.

McElroy will go to IR.

Brunell should be cut as soon as we find a better replacement off another teams scrap heap.

You have been harping on this for too long. They are not likely to "find a better replacement" because they need somebody who knows the offense. It's not like playing man to man CB. QB is the most complicated position.

matthias-berning-playercard-system-110808.jpgI know he's a longshot, but I want to keep Matthias Berning. He has the crazy eyes. You can't coach the crazy eyes.

On another note, Satele can finally open his pizza joint in the Bronx!

The Jets have said they're not keeping six WR's, and since they've said that, they lost one of the guys deadlocked for the 5th/6th spots. Last year they never carried more than five, and one of them was Brad Smith - who's not a WR. What makes anyone think they're going to six WR's now?

Bellore and/or McIntyre stick with this team long before they keep a 6th WR.

Vrentas is incorrect in her article FWIW. The Jets need to cut 26 NOT 17. Potential PS players have to clear waivers before they can be signed to practice squad. So Jets need 26 total cuts.
