The Jets began cutting players on Friday, including undrafted rookie QB Drew Willy, who could join the practice squad should he clear waivers.

According to the New York Daily News, the Jets' cuts include Willy, OL Dennis Landolt, OL Nevin McCaskill, OL Peter Clifford, OL Zane Taylor, OL Trevor Canfield, WR Dan DePalma, WR Michael Campbell, RB Chris Jennings, LB Brashton Satele, LB Joey Laroque, LB Eddie Jones, TE Keith Zinger, S Davon Morgan, S Byron Landor and DE Lorenzo Washington.

The New Jersey Star-Ledger reported that Landolt, who was on the practice squad last season, will not be brought back this season. The Star-Ledger also reported the team cut seventh-round WR Scotty McKnight, QB Mark Sanchez's childhood friend.

In the Jets' season finale on Thursday night, Willy completed 9-of-17 passes for 109 yards. Satele, a first-year player, led the team with eight tackles.
