The Van Roten Era is over

Remember when everyone really wanted Van Roten signed in free agency?  Good times.

He was always likely to go as soon as the position was upgraded this year. Herbig is young, cheaper and better.

Jets released OG Greg Van Roten.

The move clears $3.5 million against the cap. Van Roten, 32, loses his roster spot after the Jets claimed fellow veteran — and younger — OG Nate Herbig off waivers. Van Roten started 10-of-17 games for the Jets last season and has 50 games of starting experience with the Panthers and Jets over the last several seasons. He should land an interior reserve gig elsewhere.

Yup with cheaper being the key word. Jets save $3.5 mil vs the cap.

Feeney wasn't any better than GVR last year. Why did we bring him back?????

Desperation mostly. Feeny did get better but that’s not saying much.  Mullet too.

I think Justin Hardee probably goes too. Great team mate but $2 mill for a purely ST guy is going to be hard to justify with the roster improvements.
