The Jets’ somewhat shocking release of Harris came less than one week after the team traded for Demario Davis, who spent his first four NFL seasons in New York and returns after one year in Cleveland.

The weak-side linebacker spot still belongs to Darron Lee, the promising 2016 Cheap Personalized Jerseys first-rounder who started nine games last season and finished second on the team in tackles.
