    Cut by the Jets....

    New York Jets cut Stephen Hill - ESPN New York

    "Despite Hill's lack of familiarity in a pro-style offense -- he played in the triple option at Georgia Tech -- he was rushed into the starting lineup as a rookie. He caught two touchdowns in his first game, but faded."

    I feel somewhat redeemed. Hope he lands somewhere and/or saved his money.

    Way too much of his draft stock was on his combine performance. So many of his good plays at GT were simply running a sprint straight down the field and beating someone 1:1 that had one eye in the backfield.

    Good guy, glad he got the lucrative contract. If his football career doesn't proceed, he and his family will be in very good shape financially.

    Only $2.8MM guaranteed. After taxes, call it $1.8MM. Sure he bought some jewelry, car(s), etc. Maybe he has a million left? Should probably come back to get his degree.

    Looks like Panthers signed him to their practice squad.
