The New York Giants and New York City Football Club have both released their full roster for the 2017 season.
The Giants announced they will be releasing three players this week, one of which will be the team’s starting left tackle.
That leaves two options for the Jets: They can keep three players, including a second-round pick from last year, or they can cut the contracts of the remaining two.
The Jets’ most important offensive player, running back Chris Ivory, will be out for the entire season, but they have three other players that could be eligible to return for the season.
Their best defensive option, safety Eric Wright, is set to return, but the team will likely need to cut him in order to keep him.
The most interesting move in the Jets’ draft comes with the signing of offensive lineman Ryan Kelly.
The 6-foot-6, 330-pounder is an explosive athlete who can be a solid blocker, but he struggled in pass protection last season and could struggle against NFL defenders in the NFL.
Kelly is a versatile player that could have a role in the lineup if the team decides to make a big move in free agency.
The rest of the Jets roster has been released: cornerback Dwayne Harris, safety Anthony B. Allen, safety Mark Clayton, safety Derrick Mason, linebacker Kevin Burnett, cornerback Brandon Magee, linebacker Zach Bowman, running backs Bryce Love and Chris Polk, and linebacker Johnathan Hankins.
The New York Browns released their entire roster, which included their top two defensive ends.
They’ll have to make some moves to add a cornerback or linebacker in the draft.
They released linebacker Marcus Hardison, but still have options at linebacker in that area, including the likes of cornerback D.J. Johnson and linebacker Anthony Walker.
