    Jets cut to 80 before third preseason game

    Most teams make their first roster cuts after the third preseason game. The Jets decided to follow the advice of Lee Corso and trim the squad to 80, a day before hosting the Panthers on NBC’s Sunday Night Football.

    Gone are receiver Dexter Jackson (Gantt is quietly weeping into a tobacco leaf), guard Terrence Campbell, long snapper Derek Chard, defensive tackle Matt Hardison, cornerback LeQuan Lewis, safety Marcus Lott, and receiver Raymond Webber.

    A second-round pick in 2008, Jackson has bounced from Tampa to Carolina to the Virginia Destroyers of the UFL to the Jets.

    Jackson played in neither of the Jets’ preseason games, and for his career he has appeared in only seven NFL regular-season games, with no receptions. He returned 14 kickoffs and 20 punts as a rookie in Tampa.

    I can't say any of these shock me. I like Jackson but he hasn't looked good out there. Webber I thought had a shot at the PS but couldn't stay healthy I guess.

    guess they're making room to sign guys who get cut from other teams. Hopefully a servicable RT will be among them

    No not to my knowledge. Ryan Nece was though.
