those 2 players weren't really on the team, they were training camp fodder, I don't gte why this is a difficult concept. Neother guy was expected to make the team, they may not even have made it to camp. It was more a mini camp look.
If those guys could have played the jets would have kept them(see Mike Goodson) just like if Chad Johnson could still play Miami would have kept him.
Answer me this. Where those players under contract with the New York Jets at the time of their arrest and did they count towards the 90 man roster?
