Jets Release Veteran Offensive Lineman

The New York Jets have been one of the surprise teams in the NFL in 2022, as their unexpected victory over the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field in Week 6 sent their record to 4-2 on the year, and one of the features of their game in the past few weeks has been the running game with Michael Carter and breakout rookie Breece Hall. This is due to the consistent play from this offensive line, and today, the team has made the decision to let go of veteran Conor McDermott, who famously made a leaping Touchdown catch in 2021 for the team.

He hasn't been playing well in his opportunities however, and with the versatility of Alijah Vera-Tucker and the signing of Mike Remmers, there just wasn't any need for him on this very young, talented squad. This group is young, and is only getting better, and if the offensive line can be as impressive as they were at Lambeau Field, there's no reason why they can't continue this momentum all the way through to the playoffs. 

The tackle was drafted in the sixth round back in 2017 by the New England Patriots, and has also spent time with the Buffalo Bills, and with 38 games played in the NFL, he could become a solid depth piece for a team in need.
