Why did the Jets release Zalewski?

A few days into camp, the Jets re-signed linebacker Mark Zalewski, who they had signed as an undrafted free agent and then cut. Why did they cut him again, just a few days later?

Actually they didn't want to, but they had no choice. He left camp.

To replace him, the Jets signed Syracuse linebacker Jerry Mackey, who is the grand nephew of former NFL great Jerry Mackey.
