The Jets have released RB C.J. Spiller and KR Jeremy Ross. You knew there would be some fallout after last night's debacle. Spiller played in four games (31 offensive snaps). He had three rushes, one reception and five kickoff returns. This is the third time Ross has been released since the preseason. He returned six kickoffs last night, averaging 20 yards. This means PR/KR Jalin Marshall likely is returning from a concussion.
