Tajh Boyd, Matt Simms

The Jets have announced their cuts in order to get the roster down to the league mandated 53 man limit. We previously mentioned a few of the cuts, including Stephen Hill. But the full list appears below.

August 30, 2014 – The New York Jets reduced their roster to 53 by releasing the players below and placing LB Antwan Barnes on the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) List. Clubs had to reduce their roster to a maximum of 53 players by 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 30.

Released

Tajh Boyd (QB/6-1/222/Clemson/Hampton, VA)

Will Campbell (G/6-4/311/Michigan/Detroit, MI)

Troy Davis (LB/6-2/251/Central Florida/Queens, NY)

Brandon Dixon (CB/5-11/203/NW Missouri State/Pompano Beach, FL)

A.J. Edds (LB/6-4/256/Iowa/Marion, IN)

Tevita Finau (DT/6-5/288/Utah/Lahaina, HI)

Clyde Gates (WR/6-0/197/Abilene Christian/Vernon, TX)

Alex Green (RB/6-2/220/Hawaii/Portland, OR)

Stephen Hill (WR/6-4/215/Georgia Tech/Lithonia, GA)

Kerry Hyder (DL/6-2/280/Texas Tech/Austin, TX)

Garrett McIntyre (LB/6-3/255/Fresno State/South Lake Tahoe, CA)

Rontez Miles (S/6-0/203/California (PA)/Braddock, PA)

Chris Pantale (TE/6-5/254/Boston College/Wayne, NJ)

Johnny Patrick (CB/5-11/190/Louisville/Deland, FL)

Dimitri Patterson (CB/6-0/200/Tuskegee/Miami, FL)

Brent Qvale (T/6-7/315/Nebraska/Williston, ND)

Jeremy Reeves (CB/5-7/176/Iowa State/Allen, TX)

Daryl Richardson (RB/5-10/196/Abilene Christian/Jacksonville, FL)

Caleb Schlauderaff (G/6-4/302/Utah/Shelton, WA)

Matt Simms (QB/6-3/210/Tennessee/Franklin Lakes, NJ)

Zach Thompson (DL/6-5/265/Wake Forest/Ashburn, VA)

Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform (PUP)

Antwan Barnes (LB/6-1/251/Florida International/Miami, FL)

With the Jets only carrying 2 QBs, Rich Cimini clarifies a question many had about the practice squad. Matt Simms is eligible according to J.P. Pelzman, so it is likely that the Jets will try to put him on the practice squad if he isn’t claimed by another team.

The Jets will certainly try to improve the roster through the waiver wire, so the final 53 will most likely change a bit. The Jets cornerbacks can use a little help so it is possible they will make a move there.

Phil is going to have to dig deep to skewer the Jets more than he already does.  But I am confident he will.

Simms and Boyd gone. Wonder if we're going after Pryor.

(Chandler)'s a nice piece as long as he's the 7th most important player on your roster....I think they're going to be disappointed when they see he's just a pumped-up Drew Gooden.

Simms won't clear waivers. He is gonna be someone's Hostetler to his old man.

I'm thinking Simms will be get picked up to be the current backup and eventual replacement to future HOFer Brett Ratliff.  You know, for when he retires, and that way they won't miss a beat.

By day he's the (not so) mild-mannered Bleedin Green, but by night...

The Caleb Schlauderoff era is over? damn.

 

Disappointed about Miles. He was really impressive the other days. I mean, I know it was the scrub game, but he looked like he could turn into something.

 

Finally: f*ck Manish. Seriously. F*ck him.

Why have a #3 active, honestly.

 

Geno or Vick, thats the story in 2014.

 

If one gets hurt, we can sign a Boyd again, he's likely not going anywhere, nor is Simms.

 

Save the roster spot I suppose.

Holy crap there's been a lot of old faces showing up around these parts lately.  How's it going man?

 

Also, I completely agree with you, even in the unlikely scenario that either Simms or Boyd are going to get scooped up by anyone else, neither was going to save the season if both Geno and Vick went down.

That one offseason every time Tannenbaum spoke, he praised Caleb.  It was painful.
