The Jets now have two fewer receivers who are worse than Antonio Cromartie.
The team has waived DeMarcus Ganaway and Scotty McKnight (pictured).
The decision to move on from Ganaway isn’t a surprise; he didn’t play football in 2011 after playing college football at Kentucky Wesleyan. McKnight, however, was a seventh-round pick last season, and he’s the boyhood friend of quarterback Mark Sanchez.
Sanchez actually threw passes to McKnight at his Colorado Pro Day workout.
Cutting McKnight now gives him a chance to catch on elsewhere. Still, if a guy can’t stick on a 90-man roster before even one preseason game is played, that’s not a good sign.
The Jets still have 12 receivers on the roster. Thirteen, if you count Cromartie.
