Wayne Hunter may not be the starting right tackle for the Jets this year. Stephon Heyer definitely won’t be.
The Jets cut Heyer today.
The five-year veteran signed with the Jets in May, after four seasons with the Redskins and one with the Raiders. Heyer has started in 31 of 65 career games.
Heyer was listed on the most recent depth chart as the second-string right tackle, behind Hunter.
We’ve got a feeling Mark Sanchez secretly wishes that the team would cut the second-string quarterback, too.
