Jets Roster Moves: Gang Green Claims Three Players Off Waivers

The New York Jets were awarded three players on waivers Saturday. The Jets claimed claimed nose tackle Isaako Aaitui, wide receiver Clyde Gates and tiight end Konrad Reuland. To make room on the 53-man roster the Jets waived safety Antonio Allen, defensive tackle Marcus Dixon and tight end Dedrick Epps.

Aaitui, 6-foot-4, 315 pounds, spent part of last season the Miami Dolphins practice squad. The Dolphins waived him on Friday.

Gates, 5-foot-11, 197 pounds is a former fourth-round draft pick by Miami in 2011, caught two passes last season for 19 yards and returned 34 kickoffs for 843 yards (24.3 average). He spent training camp with the Dolphins prior to being waived.

Reuland, 6-foot-4, 260 pounds, spent last season the San Francisco 49ers practice squad. He was waived by the 49ers on Friday.

The Jets also announced their practice squad. It consists of:

Paul Cornick (OT), Marcus Dowtin (LB), Donnie Fletcher (DB), Royce Pollard (WR), Ricky Sapp (LB), Hayden Smith (TE), Jordan White (WR). There is one more spot available on the practice squad.


Jets Release RB Terrance Ganaway And QB Matt Simms

The New York Jets released RB Terrance Ganaway and QB Matt Simms on Friday evening as they move towards a 53-man roster. After announcing 14 cuts this afternoon, the Jets are now down to 59 players.

Ganaway, a rookie out of Baylor, holds one important distinction for the Jets:

Simms, the son of former Giants quarterback Phil Simms, was signed as an undrafted free agent back in May. He didn't play much during his senior year at Tennessee, throwing just 62 passes in a backup role.

The deadline for NFL rosters to be trimmed to 53 is Friday at 9 p.m. ET.

Brown is an accomplished NFL veteran who has previously kicked for the Seattle Seahawks and St. Louis Rams. The 33-year-old did send out the following tweet after finding out that he had been let go:

"Best of luck to the 2012 Jets... Thanks for one of the most memorable camps in 10 yrs."

With Brown's release, that makes three high-profile kickers hitting the market in the last two days with Neil Rackers and Billy Cundiff also becoming available.
