Jets open roster spot by waiving Jarron Gilbert

Braylon Edwards, Jerricho Cotchery

The Jets have opened up a roster spot in advance of Sunday’s game against the Texans.

Gone is defensive tackle Jarron Gilbert, a 2009 third-round pick of the Bears who was signed to the Jets’ practice squad on September 7 and added to the active roster on October 27.

With cornerback Dwight Lowery out due to a concussion and cornerback Marquice Cole missing practice on Wednesday and Thursday with a hamstring injury, look for the Jets to add another defensive back.

Alternatively, they could add a wideout, if Jerricho Cotchery can’t play due to a groin injury.

    That’s too bad, I was kind of hoping my Bucs would sign him to try to get something going with their pass rush, it’s terrible!

    Oh, I just looked at NFL.com transactions and realized that I mis-read the article, Gilbert was cut, not signed. Got that one backwards, kind of like Florio’s predictions on the Bucs W’s and L’s this season.

    They want Jeff Reed?

    If jumping out of pools translated to football skills, this guy would be All-World. How do you have a post about this guy without linking this video? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rXDSPbZ_OUw

    spyboots – that’s what I was thinking… I’d be upset, as a Jets fan, if the Jets signed him. Folk hasn’t been great, but Reed has definitely been worse. The Jets might be trying to sign a kicker from the UFL though. 150k to Woody Johnson to secure a kicker that doesn’t like to miss as much as Folk on a team that is trying to win the Super Bowl is a good deal.
