Bam Knight, Trey Dean Among Jets First let go as Cuts Begin

Recommended Posts


The names of Jets players being let go have started to roll in with running back Bam Knight and Trey Dean being two of the more surprising names to be let go thus far.  Dean was one of the top defenders on the roster this preseason while Knight was as good as or better than his primary competition, Michael Carter.

#Jets are releasing Zonovan "Bam" Knight, source said. He received some interest on the trade front, which could indicate a claim on Wednesday.

Knight was of course an undrafted free agent while the Jets used a pick on Carter which gave him an edge in the competition.

The team also placed cornerback Jimmy Moreland in injured reserve and parted ways with offensive lineman Greg Senat, linebackers Pita Taumopenu and Nick Vigil.
