With All-Pro CB Darrelle Revis still holding out, the Jets have kept six cornerbacks on their 53-man roster following the mandatory cutdown Saturday.

In addition to projected starters Antonio Cromartie and rookie Kyle Wilson, the Jets retained Dwight Lowery, Drew Coleman, Marquice Cole and Brian Jackson at cornerback. Cole and Jackson had been considered to be on the bubble.

Revis, who has been holding out in a quest to become the highest-paid cornerback in the league, was placed on the reserve/did-not-report list, along with QB Erik Ainge.

WR Santonio Holmes was placed on the reserve/suspended list while he serves a four-game suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy before he was acquired from Pittsburgh in April. Now he can't play or practice with the team during the suspension.

With Holmes due back in Week Five, the Jets kept only four wide receivers on their roster: Braylon Edwards, Jerricho Cotchery, Brad Smith and David Clowney. They could add a fifth in the next few days, or they might bring back the recently released Laveranues Coles after the first game.

The 21 players released by the Jets on Saturday were S Emanuel Cook, FB Jason Davis, C Robby Felix, S Keith Fitzhugh, LB Ricky Foley, WR Brooks Foster, OT Dan Gay, LB Tim Knicky, DE Jason Lamb, LB Boris Lee, LB Josh Mauga, LB Cory Reamer, LB Brashton Satele, CB Bo Smith, DT Ty Steinkuhler, OG Charlie Tanner, WR Larry Taylor, OG Chet Teofilo, NT Martin Tevaseu, OT Michael Turkovich and S  Donovan Warren.
