Jets cut Bryce Petty; Lions could face Sam Darnold Week 1

Jets coach Todd Bowles couldn't contain his glee over Sam Darnold's first practice

The Jets will release the backup quarterback on Thursday, according to multiple reports.

The Jets chose Bryce Petty as the odd man out of their crowded quarterback depth chart.

Real talk: The Jets are borderline giddy - and relieved - that they might have finally found the right guy.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network first reported the team would be interested in trading Petty, opening up to the idea after resisting last season.

Bryce Petty's time in NY is coming to an end. This move could simply be a signal of what's to come.

The Jets save $705,000 against the salary cap by cutting Petty. Petty would regress in the 2017 season, as the former 4th round pick appeared in 4 games, throwing just 1 touchdown to 3 interceptions, with a 49% completion percentage. He's been with the franchise since. The Jets drafted USC quarterback Sam Darnold with the No. 3 overall pick in this year's NFL Draft.

In those three games, Petty completed just 49.1 percent of his passes with three interceptions and one touchdown.

Petty was originally a fourth-round pick by NY out of Baylor in 2015.

NY now has four quarterbacks on its roster, including Darnold, Josh McCown, Teddy Bridgewater and Christian Hackenberg. He threw for more than 8,000 yards at Baylor.
