Jets release one, sign two

The Jets waive cornerback Tony Scott and sign DE DeAngelo Lloyd and OL Matt O'Neal.

The New York Jets waived cornerback Tony Scott and have signed defensive end DeAngelo Lloyd and offensive lineman Matt O'Neal.  

 

Scott, a two-year veteran of the Jets, was originally selected in the sixth round of the 2000 NFL Draft out of North Carolina State University.  The cornerback totaled one interception, a pass defensed, one tackle, tackle, and ten special teams tackles in 23 career games with the Jets.

 

Lloyd, a 6-6, 280-pound defensive end from the University of Tennessee is coming off of a spring season with the Frankfurt Galaxy in NFL Europe.  He totaled 30 tackles, including four and a half sacks, along with two pass defenses and a blocked field goal over the ten-game season. 

 

O'Neal, a 6-3, 290-pound center/guard from the University of Oklahoma also played in NFL Europe this spring.  He was with the Scottish Claymores.  O'Neal originally signed as a rookie free agent with the Atlanta Falcons in 2000.  He spent that season on injured reserve after suffering a knee injury in the preseason.  He successfully rehabilitated the injured knee and returned to the Falcons' training camp in 2001, before being released on their final cuts.
