Breaking News: New York Jets Release Expensive Former Bears Defensive Player Amid Disappointing 2024 Season

In their most recent move, the 4-7 Jets have decided to release their former starting safety, Adrian Amos, who was signed to a one-year, $4-million contract during the offseason. Amos, a 30-year-old safety, had spent the first eight seasons of his NFL career split evenly between the Chicago Bears and the Green Bay Packers. Although he joined the Jets in June and started in three games, he continued to struggle, resulting in his demotion in favor of Tony Adams.
The Jets approach their upcoming game against the Atlanta Falcons this weekend with a sense of urgency, desperately needing a win. Aaron Rodgers has returned to practice this week, and the team is optimistic about his potential return as their starting quarterback in the upcoming weeks. However, much of the decision regarding Rodgers will hinge on the Jets' position in the playoff race. Another loss could mean that we won't see A-Rod on the field again until 2024.
