Jets waive Justin Miller

New York Jets General Manager Mike Tannenbaum announced today that the Jets have waived cornerback/kick returner Justin Miller.

The news comes as a surprise: Jets special teams coordinator Mike Westhoff said on Friday that Miller would probably play on Sunday. Instead, he’s no longer on the team.

A second-round draft pick of the Jets in 2005, Miller was waived during the 2008 season and claimed by the Raiders. This year the Raiders let him go and the Jets brought him back, but he played in only one game.

Although he’s been inconsistent, Miller has undeniable talent as a kickoff returner. He has a career average of 26.1 yards per return, with five touchdowns.

    Seeing as how Brandon McDonald sucks, I could stomach another ex-Jet.

    I have a feeling that he will end up in the red,white,dual blue Titans … he did come in for a physical prior to signing with Raiders , and then jumped straight back to the J E T S … Well , now both have dumped him , and with the Titans having Alvin Pearlman (who sucks fairly bad ) and Michael Griffin running kicks back , this would make too much sense not to happen . But as Florio repeatedly states , if it makes too much sense , then it probably wont happen regarding the NFL .
