Jets release WR T.J. Graham, 11 others

The New York Jets have released 12 players, bringing their roster to 78.

Sunday morning, the New York Jets announced the release of 12 players. The team's roster now sits at 78 players, and must be down to the league-mandated 75 before 4 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 1. 

The following players were released: Receivers T.J. GrahamAustin Hill, Saalim Hakim, DeVier Posey, and Jonathon Rumph, tight end Matt LaCosse, offensive linemen James Brewer and Dalton Freeman, linebacker Bryan Johnson, and defensive backs Javier ArenasCurtis Brown and Keith Lewis

While few of the cuts come as much of a surprise, arguably the biggest name released is that of T.J. Graham. Originally a third-round pick of the Buffalo Bills in 2012, Graham signed with the Jets on Sept. 29 last year. He appeared in 12 games for New York, playing primarily on special teams, and caught three passes or 87 yards.

The highlight of Graham's season was a 67-yard touchdown pass he caught from ex-Jets quarterback Michael Vick
