Barrett Released

The Jets have released cornerback/safety David Barrett.

The Jets today announced the release of veteran cornerback David Barrett, a move that'll save the team $5.1 million on the salary cap.

The move wasn't unexpected. Barrett, a nine-year pro, took a pay cut last season. He was due to earn a $3.7 million base salary in 2009 and was scheduled to receive a $1.4 million roster bonus in March.

Barrett regressed every year of his tenure with the Jets. Back in 2004, he was the top secondary player on the team. By the end of his fifth season, he could not even crack the lineup on a team with subpar secondary play.
