That the Jets are releasing longtime G Brian Winters ($7.3M cap savings) is not a surprise in a larger sense; the surprise is the timing. It was thought that he'd have a chance to compete in camp for a starting job. But here's the reality: They have to get down soon to 80 players because of the COVID-19 rules. Chances are, he would've lost the RG job to newcomer Greg Van Roten. So the Jets cut loose a locker-room leader and their longest-tenured player.

Jets release longtime starting guard Winters

The New York Jets have released veteran right guard Brian Winters, who had been the team's longest-tenured player. The move removes Winters' non-guaranteed $7.3 million salary from the books with no hit to the salary cap.

Sources: Jets LB Mosley opts out of 2020 season

Jets middle linebacker C.J. Mosley, the most accomplished player on their defense, has decided to opt out for the 2020 season, sources told ESPN.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

What a massive challenge for Jets DC Gregg Williams: No C.J. Mosley (opt out), no Jamal Adams (traded). Two impact players gone in a week. If anyone can figure out a way, it's Williams. Silver lining: They have good LB depth and got used to playing without Mosley last season. But that was with Adams wreaking havoc in the box. This will be tougher. This should secure Avery Williamson's standing. Ex-Ravens LB Patrick Onwuasor also will be a key.

New Jets SS Bradley McDougald — aka the other player in the Jamal Adams trade — made a strong impression in his first zoom call with NY reporters. He praised DC Gregg Williams ("intense"), touted his coverage skills vs top TEs and claimed he doesn't see himself as Adams' replacement. "I can't be Jamal, I'm not the same person as Jamal," he said. "All I can do is be the same person every day, be the best Bradley McDougald."

Team captain Steve McLendon, the first Jets player to discuss racial allegations against owner Woody Johnson, said: "I'm not going to speak on him or any of the comments that he said or made, and I don't pass judgment on anybody. At the end of the day, he will be held accountable for his actions ... Whatever he said, he said. It's out there. I have a great deal of respect for Christopher (Johnson). I'm going to let them handle that in any sort of fashion they want to handle that."

The Jets made a flurry of roster moves today, placing QB Joe Flacco (neck), TE Ryan Griffin (ankle) and LB Avery Williamson (knee) on PUP. They put TE Daniel Brown on the active/NFI list and released DL Domenique Davis. No shockers here, although Griffin bears watching. He had an extensive rehab after a fracture and significant ligament damage late last season. As previously reported, Flacco won't be ready until September. His surgery was in April.

Reserve LB Ahmad Gooden became the Jets' third player to land on the reserve/COVID-19 list. This means he tested positive or potentially was exposed to someone with the virus. Also, the Jets placed RB Jalin Moore on the reserve/retired list.

The Jets have placed rookie DBs Bryce Hall and Shyheim Carter on the COVID-19/reserve list. This doesn't mean they tested positive. A player can be placed on the list due to potential exposure. When healthy, they will be activated. Hall, a fifth-round pick from Virginia, is expected to make the team. Meanwhile, C Leo Koloamatangi opted out. He was a long shot to make the roster.

Gase moving on from Jets' breakup with Adams

Jets coach Adam Gase, commenting for the first time Tuesday on the blockbuster trade that sent disgruntled safety Jamal Adams to the Seahawks, called Adams an "incredible talent," but acknowledged, "We want guys who want to be here."

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Interesting note on the Woody Johnson controversy: When it was reported last week that the Jets' owner/US ambassador allegedly made racist and sexist comments, his younger brother — team CEO Christopher Johnson — called almost every player on the roster to allay their concerns. He explained "what the Johnson family stands for," per Adam Gase. He added, "I believe exactly what he says ... I've been very impressed by how he's gone about this."

Jamal Adams No Longer a Jet

Today on NFL Live, training camp is underway! Coaches and players arrived at camp. How will they navigate with the challenge of Covid 19? And Jamal Adams got his wish - he is now a Seahawk. What did head coach Adam Gase have to say about it?

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

The Jets' full squad is reporting to training camp today for COVID-19 testing. Normally, the first practice would be tomorrow, but there's nothing normal about this year. "We have to do the right things," GM Joe Douglas said. "There needs to be a collective buy-in from not only the players, but the staff and the coaches. We all need to do the right things once we leave this building to make sure we can stay here and be part of the sport we all love."

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

GM Joe Douglas was the first member of the Jets' organization to comment on the racist and sexist allegations against owner Woody Johnson. Douglas related a conversation he had with team CEO Christopher Johnson, who told the GM his brother "would never make comments like that of any sort." Douglas also said Johnson told him "that's not what we're about and that's not what the Johnson family is about." Woody Johnson is a US ambassador in London.
