The Jets today waived TE Joe Kowalewski and FB Stacy Tutt.
Kowalewski (6-4, 250, Syracuse), signed as an undrafted free agent on May 15, 2006, after attending a rookie mini-camp as a tryout player. In 13 NFL games, with two starts, Kowalewski recorded 18 yards and one touchdown on five receptions. He spent the entire 2006 season as a member of the Jetsí practice squad.
Tutt (6-1, 233, Richmond), played in nine games and recorded seven special team tackles in 2007 before being placed on injured reserve on Nov. 17. Originally signed as an undrafted rookie free agent on May 12, 2006, he spent the first 13 games of the 2006 season on the practice squad before being elevated to the active roster on Dec. 16, 2006. He contributed on offense and special teams in two games as a rookie, but did not record any statistics.
