Jets get to 75-man limit, cut Jacoby Ford, Ras-I Dowling
The Jets got down to the 75-man limit ahead of Tuesday’s deadline, making six cuts including wide receiver Jacoby Ford and cornerback Ras-I Dowling.
They also released wide receiver Michael Campbell, tight end Colin Anderson, fullback Chad Young and defensive end Anthony Grady.
The Jets upgraded their receiving corps this offseason, but Ford still figured to have a chance as a return man, and will likely get that chance elsewhere.
Dowling, the Patriots’ second-round pick in 2011, spent time on the Jets’ practice squad last year, but he was limited to special teams snaps this preseason.
