Jets cut veterans Dyson, McCareins and Clarke

The Jets began their annual roster purge today by announcing the release of veterans CB Andre Dyson, WR Justin McCareins and G Adrien Clarke.

Dyson, a seven year vet who signed with the Jets as an unrestricted free agent in 2006, had his role reduced significantly last season with the emergence of several youngsters including rookie Darrelle Revis. The move saves the Jets $1.25 MM in cap space.

McCareins had been with the team for the last four seasons after being acquired from the Titans in 2004 for a second round draft pick. Since then he's never developed into the dependable deep threat that the Jets had hoped. He was scheduled to make a base salary of a little over $1MM this season.

Clarke, a three-year veteran filled in miserably last season after the Jets traded Pete Kendall to the Redskins. Clarke was scheduled to make $445K this year. The move fuels more speculation that the Jets will heavily pursue Steelers FA Alan Faneca. Free agency begins on March 1st.
