Crowded DL or not, this is pretty surprising. They save $1.3m on the cap though. Still he was good depth and pretty awesome against the run in limited action.[QUOTE]@BrianCoz
Jets have waived DE Ropati Pitoitua[/QUOTE]
[QUOTE=ozu;4457951]Pass rusher is not really in his job description. For the job he was tasked with, he did very well.[/QUOTE]
We have too many run stuffers as it is. Ropati will probably find a job on another team. Between Pouha, Devito, Wilkerson, Coples, Dixon, Richardson, and MTV our interior d-line is set already. His body type doesnt make him an ideal run stuffer.
Obviously, someone was going to be the odd man out with the addition of Coples though, Wilkerson, Coples, Devito and Dixon is pretty darn solid depth for the position, and still have guys like MTV around as insurance.
Ropi had the Misfortune of playing last yr after coming back from achiles surgery.This was the yr he would had been back to full strength.It's too b ad because this kid was looking good before He got injured.
