The New York Jets cut 11 players Sunday and placed wide receiver Devin Smith on reserve/physically-unable-to-perform, which trims their roster to 78. They need to be at 75 players by 4 p.m. Tuesday. Here's a closer look at the first cuts:
Placing Smith on the PUP list means he isn't eligible to play until Week 7. This was hardly a surprise. The 2015 second-round pick underwent major knee surgery in December and still has a ways to go before he's ready to begin practicing. This might turn out to be a medical redshirt year for Smith, whose game is predicated on speed and explosiveness.
