Jets Shuffle Lineup; Some Tweets from the Players Affected

Cut weekend can’t be fun for any football player that knows he is on what they call the NFL bubble.  Approximately 700 players would be cut on Saturday and then the waiver claims would begin and they did.

The Jets ended up making three claims and announced their practice squad.

Greg McElroy put out a tweet that was classy expressing his gratitude for the organization and the fan support.
