The Jets have made 22 transactions today to get their roster down to the NFL's mandated 53-player limit.

Other veterans released included DT Antonio Garay, WRs Ben Obomanu and Mohamed Massaquoi — two of four wideouts released — and recently signed K Dan Carpenter and T Jason Smith.
Also, RB Mike Goodson was moved from the Active/Non-Football Injury/Illness list to Reserve/Suspended and will not count against our roster for four weeks.
