The Jets finally announced their cuts Saturday night -- slashing their roster from 75 to 53. There were a few surprises: all seven of their draft picks made the cut...the team decided to keep four quarterbacks -- including the newly-signed Graham Harrell...and the Jets chose to part ways with recently-signed OL Jason Smith, a former second-round draft pick (it was the right call, I just didn't think they'd do it).

Here's a full position breakdown: four QB, four RBs, five WRs, three TEs, nine O-lineman, five D-lineman, 10 linebackers, 10 defensive backs and three special teamers.
