Jets Release Quarterback Bryce Petty

The Jets have made a move at the QB spot, as today the team released one-time draft pick Bryce Petty.

One week after selecting Sam Darnold with the No. 3 pick of the NFL draft, the New York Jets addressed their overcrowded quarterback room by waiving former draft pick Bryce Petty on Thursday.

That leaves four quarterbacks on the roster: Darnold, incumbent starter Josh McCown, free-agent addition Teddy Bridgewater and 2016 second-round pick Christian Hackenberg.

The Jets likely will carry only three in the regular season. They tried to trade Petty during the draft, but they found no takers.

Petty, a fourth-round choice in 2015, posted a 1-6 record as a starter over the past two seasons. All told, he had 4 touchdown passes and 10 interceptions and completed just 53 percent of his attempts.
