Good morning, Gang Green Nation! I hope you’re all having a great start to the day. We are officially one week away from the start of the 2021 NFL season. Yesterday the Jets finished their cuts to get down to the 53-man roster, and had some surprise releases. Blessuan Austin was one of them. A fan favorite, and a player that seemed to have a lot of potential. So much so, that many presumed he would be a starter on the team this season. Instead, the Jets will probably go with a rookie at the position - a risk indeed. The team also cut Jabari Zuniga, a third round selection by Joe Douglas in last year’s draft. It was a puzzling pick then, but it’s good to see Douglas isn’t afraid to make the tough decisions, and doesn’t fall into the sunk cost fallacy. Hopefully Douglas is able to steer this ship in the right direction. With that, here are your links to the team this morning.
