The Jets released veteran OT Stephon Heyer, the team announced Monday.

Heyer signed with the Jets in May. Last season, he played in 12 games for the Raiders. He has appeared in 65 career games with 31 starts.

Heyer was signed as potential competition for starting ORT Wayne Hunter, but Austin Howard, who was on the practice squad last season, is the clear No. 2 at the position and might even be battling to start.
