Last April the Jets drafted a starting tight end. Now they are releasing one.
The Jets have decided to cut tight end Chris Baker rather than paying him the $9 million roster bonus due March 5.
But just because the Jets are releasing Baker now doesn’t mean he will not return to the team. The Jets would like to re-sign him, and Baker would welcome the idea of returning to the team. But before he does, he will test the market, see what other teams are offering and then make his decision.
But the Jets have made theirs — they are releasing Baker.
