Jets Roster Moves: New York Releases Josh Brown, 5 Other Players

Monday is the first required cut date in the NFL, and the New York Jets were among the teams making several roster moves in order to get down to the 75-player limit.

The Jets made six moves Monday and now have 74 players on their roster. Below is a complete list of the Jets initial cuts.


Damario Ambrose (LB / 6'5 / 270 / Arkansas / Mobile, AL)

Stanley Arukwe (WR / 6'0 / 180 / Troy / Tracy, CA)

Wes Kemp (WR / 6'4 / 220 / Missouri / St. Louis, MO)

Jeremy Stewart (RB / 6'1 / 218 / Stanford / Baton Rouge, LA)


Josh Baker (FB/TE / 6'3 / 224 / Northwest Missouri State / Chesapeake, VA)


Josh Brown (K / 6'0 / 202 / Nebraska / Foyil, OK)

Brown's release means Nick Folk has once again won the Jets' kicking job. Folk made 19-of-25 attempts last season, his second with the Jets.

The next cut date is scheduled for Friday, Aug. 31. The Jets and the rest of the NFL will have to set their final 53-man rosters then.
