The Jets swapped one safety for another Sunday.
The team was awarded former Seahawks strong safety Ronald Martin off waivers, and in a subsequent move released fan favorite Rontez Miles.

The Seahawks signed the 6-2, 220-pound Martin as an undrafted free agent this offseason. The LSU product had 11 tackles and two passes defensed with Seattle this preseason.
Martin, 22, started 13 games as a senior and recorded a career-high 73 tackles, two interceptions and nine pass breakups.
Miles, who made the initial 53-man cut on Saturday, had 23 tackles and also scored on a fumble return this preseason.
Following the Jets' final exhibition game against the Eagles, Miles expressed confidence in his future -- whether it was with the Jets or elsewhere.
"I've been through enough not to worry about cuts," said Miles, who had an impressive camp after suffering a serious leg injury in December that required surgery.
"I've been down this road plenty of times before. I'm at peace right now. Whatever happens, I just thank the Jets and the coaching staff for even letting me play. [I had the] second-most reps this preseason. In the previous two years, I barely got half of that. So the fact that I got this many reps, I'm comfortable. I've got tape and I know I can play."
