    Jets waive Ropati Pitoitua

    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

    Dang, I kept hoping for him to break out.

    Good luck to him.

    Yea. Bit of a log jam on the DL.

    I like MTV and Dixon over him. I also have hopes for Ellis.

    Next man out might be Devito.

    Devito is not getting cut. You don't get rid of a premier run stuffer.

    Ropati did not impress last year. Needs to be a better pass rusher.

    [QUOTE=JetsCrazey;4457950]Ropati did not impress last year. Needs to be a better pass rusher.[/QUOTE]Pass rusher is not really in his job description. For the job he was tasked with, he did very well.

    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.

    As stated before by rex. Overall team speed looks like the theme this offseason.

    Hopefully done to free up cash to sign a veteran OT for a three man competition between said FA, Vlad, and Hunter.

    think cap saving is only 700K because that's saving above minimum contract that will take his place in counting against the cap.

    Surprised, but not absolutely shocked.

    Sucks, I liked Ropati.

    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.

    Braylon is not coming back. We traded up for a WR. Once that happened it sealed Braylons fate here. We will be going with what we have.

    This move was hopefully made so we can sign a veteran OT.
