Three Released

A pair of rookie tight ends and a 2007 draftee are heading out of town.

Former Rutgers tight end Kevin Brock, tight end Jack Simmons and wide receiver Marcus Henry have been cut by the Jets, according to people familiar with the team's roster decisions but who requested anonymity because they are not authorized to speak for the team or players.

Neither Brock nor Simmons impressed the team enough to prevent the signing of Ben Hartsock. Henry was a developmental pick in the 2008 Draft. He had impressive measurables in terms of size and speed, but I guess he didn't develop quickly enough.

It's sad to see careers potentially end, but it is part of the business. If these three couldn't make the roster, it's possible this is the end of the road since the Jets are thin at the positions they play.
