The Jets announced that running back Cedric Houston has left the team and does not know when he will return. The reason given was "personal reasons". The Jets also signed former CFL WR Chris Davis.
Houston (6-0, 220, Tennessee), a sixth round (182nd overall) selection by the Jets in 2005, rushed for 676 yards and seven touchdowns and gained 109 receiving yards on 15 catches in two seasons with the team. He is currently third on the Jets depth chart behind newly acquired RB Thomas Jones and second year man Leon Washington. More information on this story will be posted as soon as details surface.
Davis (5-10, 180, Wake Forest) compiled 721 receiving yards on 62 receptions with four touchdowns and rushed for 175 yards and one score in four seasons at Wake Forest. Since graduating in 2005, he spent portions of the last two seasons with the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League, tallying nine catches for 83 yards before being released on June 24, 2007.
The team officially begins training camp tomorrow. Although the signing of first round pick Darrelle Revis has not yet been announced, sources say he will be inked by tomorrow morning.
