Jets cut K Taylor Bertolet

The Jets brought Jason Myers onto the roster late in the preseason, but he apparently showed the team enough in a short time to earn a spot on the roster.

According to multiple reports, the Jets have waived kicker Taylor Bertolet. Bertolet made all four field goals he tried during the preseason, but has never played in any regular season games.

Myers has 38 games of experience with the Jaguars and he made both of the field goals he tried against the Eagles on Thursday night. He opened the preseason with the Seahawks and joined the Jets on August 21.

There’s a chance that the Jets could move in a different direction once cuts have been made around the league, but it looks like Myers’ job for now.

  1. That was a mistake… they should have kept Bertolet. He’s younger & a much better Kicker then Myers. Special Teams are HORRIBLE & it’s going to cost the NY Jets a game or two or three! Then they cut the kid with a stronger leg, over a Veteran, why? That only complicates the Special Teams more then they already are. I’m a Jets fan, & this is A typical NY Jets mess up! Bertolet is a much better Kicker then Myers. I hate to say this but, it’s the “ same ole’ Jets ” typical! NY Jets also need to let go of Coach Boyer ( its unfortunate because Brant Boyer is a good guy but a horrible ST Coach ) They need to bring Coach Westhoff back next season…

    ===================================================

    What makes you think Westhoff has the slightest interest in returning to a team he quit on? Westhoff was great in his day, but the sun set on his day quite a few years back.You should read up on his departure and what he said when he left and shortly thereafter.

    Howland, I come around here are read most the articles about the Patriots and the Jets and you, my dear man, are no Jets fan. Not even close. Every time you throw that in the rest of the comment is a rip on them. It’s okay that you don’t like them, but stop with the “I’m a Jets fan” stuff. It doesn’t provide cover or credibility. Just hate on them if you want. It’s okay with everyone. Really, it is.
