NFL roster cut tracker
Teams had until 6 p.m. ET on Saturday to reduce their rosters to a maximum of 53 players. Who was cut?
McElroy appeared in two games for the Jets last season. He replaced a struggling Mark Sanchez to lead the team to a Week 13 win over the Arizona Cardinals. Three weeks later, McElroy got his first start, a loss to the San Diego Chargers, in which he suffered a concussion that he initially failed to report to the team.
Logic would dictate that you'd want to keep a veteran like that around, but the Jets apparently have other plans.
