Jets Training Camp: Jets Release Kevin O'Connell, Signs Point to Brunell Coming Back

Jason LaCanfora of NFL.com reports that the Jets have released quarterback Kevin O’Connell. Just moments ago we reported that the team had released quarterback Mark Brunell, but now it’s looking as though he may come back at a reduced salary.

This move by Jets General Manager Mike Tannenbaum is likely in part to clear salary cap space for the team’s pursuit of top free agent cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha. The Jets also likely feel that Mark Sanchez could still use the tutelage of the veteran Brunell as he continues to grow, now entering his third season.

Stay tuned…
