Roster cut deadline is 4:00 P.M. Today.

The Jets, and all other NFL teams, are trimming their roster from 90 players to 53 players. The deadline to do so is 4 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time, today, September 1. Prior to cuts there are often last minute trades. We’ll be tracking every move the Jets make so stay tuned.

Then it’s the waiver wire.

After the Jets make their cuts on Saturday, they will start sifting through the waiver wire, looking at 1100 + newly cut NFL players to potentially add to the roster. The Jets could most likely be looking for offensive linemen, tight ends, linebackers, returners and kickers, in addition to any other cut players who might help them upgrade the roster.

The waiver wire claiming period ends on Sunday, September 2 at 12:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time.

You can track cuts from around the league at SB Nation.

Then the practice squad.

Following the waiver wire, the Jets and all other NFL teams will begin to sign players to the 10 man practice squad starting at 1:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time on Sunday, September 2.

One thing that will always make the roster is the incredible Great American Twitter Widget. You can follow all the Jets related tweets throughout the hectic next few days below.
