Jets waive punter

Matt Turk gets the boot

The New York Jets announced today they have waived punter
Matt Turk.  The announcement was made by Jets' General Manager Terry

Turk, a 6-5, 235-pound punter from Wisconsin-Whitewater, punted 63 times for
2,584 yards (41.0) with a 34.9 net yard per punt average last season.  In
eight NFL seasons, Turk has totaled 624 punts for 26,756 yards (42.9 avg.)
with a long of 77 yards, and has placed 197 punts inside the 20.

Jets Confidential asked Bradway about Turk's status in late February and this was the response - "Turk is our punter right now.  I think Matt was a little disappointed in how he kicked, but I think he's got enough talent that he can kick and he's our punter.  I know he's got a good relationship with Mike and I would expect him to be better."
