%name Jets waive Raymond, who had costly fumbled punt at Oakland

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) The New York Jets have waived wide receiver Kalif Raymond, two days after his fumbled punt changed momentum in the team’s loss at Oakland.

Raymond was claimed off waivers by the Jets on Sept. 3 after he played his rookie season with Denver last year. He served as New York’s primary returner on punts and kickoffs in the first two games, but had ball security issues.

Raymond mishandled two punts in the opener at Buffalo, but recovered both fumbles. Last Sunday against the Raiders, he fumbled a punt with 1:50 left in the opening half and the Jets trailing 14-10. The Raiders recovered the fumble at the Jets 4 and scored three plays later. New York never got close after that.
