NEW YORK (AP) The New York Jets have released long snapper Tanner Purdum, the team’s longest-tenured player.
Purdum, a member of the Jets since 2010, played in 112 consecutive games over seven seasons. According to the team, Purdum was never charged with an errant snap or penalty during his time with New York.
He became the Jets’ longest-tenured player in June, when the team released linebacker David Harris. Defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson and running back Bilal Powell, both members of New York’s 2011 draft class, now assume that title.
