In some no-big-deal news, the Jets waived a couple players who weren't going to see any time on the game field, anyway.
Tuesday, the Jets announced they relieved reserves linebacker Eddie Jones and safety DeAngelo Smith.
Jones spent stints on the Jets' and Rams' practice squads last season, and he saw action in one Jets game (Oct. 9 vs. the Patriots). The Jets re-signed him in mid-January.
Smith, who signed with the Jets in April, was selected by the Cowboys in the fifth round of the 2009 draft and spent time with the Cowboys, Browns, Bears and Lions.
Neither player would have made their way into Rex Ryan's game day defense without some major help via injuries, as the Jets are relatively deep at linebacker and now have a veteran safety corps.
