P Reggie Hodges Waived
The Jets must like UDFA T.J. Conley (Idaho, shown above) as the only punter on the roster (EDIT: Eric Wilbur was signed on April 15), Reggie Hodges, has been waived. The silver lining for the Jets' former punter was that he was able to sell his #6 to Mark Sanchez before his release, so hopefully, he made a couple of bucks that way.
As for Conley, he was 6th in the nation in punting average last season (47.4), and he was named a first-team Walter Camp All-American.
Wilbur went undrafted in last year's draft out of Florida after being named a semifinalist for the Ray Guy award.
RB Marcus Mason was waived as well.
