On Monday the New York Jets decided to make a changer at punter, bringing back Ryan Quigley and releasing Robert Malone, who had the Jets second longest punt of 84 yards in week one. The Jets also filled the open roster spot created when Mark Sanchez was placed on injured reserve – designated to return by bringing back linebacker Scott Solomon.
Despite that Robert Malone has punted the second longest punt in New York Jets history, 84 yards in week one versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the coaches decided to make a change and give those duties back to his camp and preseason competition, Ryan Quigley. Malone has not been consistent in getting opponents pinned deep so hopefully Quigley can accomplish that going forward. In camp he was not so consistent in the length or overall quality of his punts, so maybe the coaches have seen improvements that make this change more worthwhile.
Also on Monday, the Jets re-signed linebacker Scott Solomon to replace Mark Sanchez on the 53-man roster. The moves continued with the practice squad as well, as wide receiver Rahsaan Vaughn was waived and linebacker Danny Lansanah was re-signed.
The New York Jets (1-1) will next face the Buffalo Bills (1-1) Sunday at 4:25pm at MetLife Stadium as the battle of the 2013 rookie quarterbacks will have it's first matchup. Geno Smith will hope to play a more solid overall game while the Jets defense should remain stout to hopefully come away with another victory.
