Jets cut 18, including veteran LBs David Bass, Kevin Minter
NEW YORK (AP) — The Jets have cut 18 players, including veteran linebackers David Bass and Kevin Minter, to pare their roster to 71.
New York has until 4 p.m. EDT on Saturday to reach the NFL’s 53-man limit.
Safety Rontez Miles, on the physically unable to perform list, is expected to be moved to the regular-season PUP list and clear another spot.
Also, cornerback Rashard Robinson, wide receiver ArDarius Stewart and linebacker Kevin Pierre-Louis will be placed on the suspended list — leaving the Jets to make 14 more cuts.
Among those released Friday are wide receiver Charles Johnson, guard Gino Gradkowski and defensive lineman Kendall Reyes.
Quarterback John Wolford, who played the majority of the preseason finale at Philadelphia, was among those waived, as were defensive lineman Xavier Cooper, linebacker Obum Gwacham and safety Kacy Rodgers II, son of Jets defensive coordinator Kacy Rodgers.
