The Jets, for some inexplicable reason, chose to draft safeties in the first two rounds despite already having a solid tandem and so many other more pressing holes.

Gilchrist's days were numbered given the influx of young talent at his position and his health.

Gilchrist suffered a season-ending torn patella tendon injury against the San Francisco 49ers last season. Gilchrist started and played in 29 straight games for the Jets in '15 and '16 before suffering a season-ending knee injury in Week 14 past year. He tore a patellar tendon last December 11 against the San Francisco 49ers.

One this is for certain, the Jets are excited about Adams as well as second-round pick Marcus Maye.

And on Thursday, they announced they've cut veteran safety Marcus Gilchrist.

Green's body was found along a dirt road in Sonoma County May 11 and an autopsy determined he was killed by a single gunshot. In this May 23, 2016 photo, the front gate is shut at the mansion where Tiffany Li lived in Hillsborough, California.

"He was nearly like a coach on the field", Rodgers said shortly after Gilchrist was lost for the season. The 28-year-old was due to count $7.4 million toward the 2017 salary cap.

The Jets revamped their secondary this offseason, with Gilchrist's release being the latest move. He was part of a secondary overhaul that included the additions of cornerbacks Darrelle Revis and Antonio Cromartie. And it also forces him to compete. Carter signed with Gang Green previous year and had 13 tackles and five special teams tackles. The former Auburn quarterback had been converted to cornerback by Jacksonville in 2015, and was used mostly as a kick returner after joining the Jets last season.

The Indianapolis Colts have signed 18 undrafted rookies, including receivers Trey Griffey and Jerome Lane, whose fathers were pro athletes.

Lane's father played in the National Basketball Association and broke a backboard in college at Pitt.
