Jets pare roster with 14 cuts

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- The Jets released 14 players Monday. Here you go:


RB/KR Joe McKnight -- I could provide an explanation, but I'm not going to get into that.

G Stephen Peterman -- Another bad signing by GM John Idzik. The cost was minimal; only a $65,000 signing bonus. Looks like Vladimir Ducasse will be the opening-day starter at left guard.

P Ryan Quigley -- He was leading Robert Malone, but he stumbled big time on Saturday night. Malone is the guy. For now.

Other cuts: WR Joe Collins, S Donnie Fletcher, G Patrick Ford, T Trey Gilleo, S Bret Lockett, LB Sean Progar-Jackson, WR Marcus Rucker, LS Patrick Scales, RB Chad Spann, WR K.J. Stroud and WR Rahsaan Vaughn.
