Trimming Down to 53

Today is cut day in the NFL. You know the drill: By 6 p.m. tonight the Jets have to get the roster down to 53 from 75. The list will be updated throughout the day.

Here are the final cuts:

RB Mike Goodson

He isn’t cut, just moved to the Reserved/Suspended list to serve his 4-game suspension.

S Rontez Miles

Miles was a good special teamer. He is a candidate to make the practice squad if he clears waivers.

WR Mohamed Massaquoi

A former second-round pick of the Cleveland Browns, Massaquoi was signed when Braylon Edwards was having trouble getting on the field. He didn’t make much of an impact, and with Ryan Spadola and Ben Obomanu ahead of him, he was likely the odd man out.

QB Greg McElroy

Another cut that would have been more shocking earlier in camp. With his nagging injury, and the emergence of Matt Simms this became apparent. The only question was would the team keep 4 quarterbacks like Rex Ryan suggested after Thursday night’s game. But even that seemed like a long shot.

K Dan Carpenter

Carpenter was signed just before the fourth and final preseason game. There was a chance he could unseat incumbent Nick Folk, but not much. Not a big surprise to see him released.

NT Antonio Garay

Might’ve been a shock earlier in training camp, but with the emergence of Damon Harrison and Leger Douzable he was expendable.
