QB Ricky Ray, RB Leonard Henry and TE Josh Norman were released after all three participated in the team's minicamp this past weekend.

The sigining of FA QB Jay Fiedler was the writing on the wall for Ray who was signed last February after having success in the CFL. Despite showing promise, Ray never made past third string on the depth chart behind 3rd year QB Brooks Bollinger.

Henry, a 6-1, 210-pound running back out of East Carolina, was signed by the Jets on April 6, 2005, after a three-year stint with the Miami Dolphins.

Norman, a 6-3, 240-pound tight end out of Oklahoma, was signed as a free agent on February 1, 2005.

MISCELLANEOUS TIDBITS: Although no official announcement has been made, sources say that CB Donnie Abraham has decided to retire. The Jets will likely wait till after June 1st to make the announcement for salary cap reasons. The Jets will also reportedly try to sign former Patriots CB Ty Law as soon as he can demostrate that his recovering broken foot is healed.
