The Jets cut four of their 2012 draft picks in order to make the 53-man roster limit, but two of those will be joining the Jets anyway as members of the team's practice squad.
Seventh-rounders Jordan White and Antonio Allen both cleared waivers, unlike the team's sixth-round pick, Terence Ganaway, a running back out of Baylor who was picked up by the Rams after New York cut him loose. The team opted not to bring back offensive lineman Robert Griffin, who, like Ganaway, was also a sixth-round pick out of Baylor, but did clear waivers.
Here's the full eight-man group:
Allen was a surprise late cut after a strong preseason. White led the NCAA in receiving as a senior with over 1,900 yards for Western Michigan, and the Australian-born Smith has turned heads as he has tried to turn a professional rugby career into one in football.
