Jets lose Ganaway to Rams; waive half of their draft picks
The Jets have now officially parted ways with three of their 2012 draft picks.
RB Terrance Ganaway, who scored the only touchdown of the preseason, was one of the final seven not to make the 53-man roster. And by Saturday afternoon, he was claimed by the St. Louis Rams.
“Headed to St. Louis! God is faithful and I am truly grateful for yet another opportunity!” Ganaway tweeted.
His Baylor teammate, OL Robert T. Griffin, was one of the initial cuts when the team pared down its roster to 60. The pair was selected was selected back-to-back in the sixth round – Ganaway at No. 202 overall and Griffin at 203 – using compensatory picks.
WR Jordan White, the Jets’ seventh-round (and final) pick, also was cut on Friday. No word yet on whether he has cleared waivers and will return to the Jets.
The Jets on Saturday also cut fellow seventh-round pick S Antonio Allen, according to multiple outlets.
Just four of Mike Tannenbaum’s draft picks made the 53-man roster: DE Quinton Coples (first round), WR Stephen Hill (second round), LB Demario Davis (linebacker) and S Josh Bush (sixth round).
