Two special-teams Pro Bowlers won't be returning to the Jets this year.
Jason Myers, who made the Pro Bowl in 2018, posted a thank you message to Jets fans Wednesday afternoon, and SNY's Ralph Vacchiano reports that Myers indeed isn't expected to return to the Jets. Additionally, the Jets are not expected to re-sign return specialist Andre Roberts, according to the Daily News.
Thank you jets fans! I had a hell of a year in New York. I'll truly cherish my time there and It'll always hold a special place in my heart. You welcomed me and my family with support and love, and I'll forever be thankful! pic.twitter.com/OK3meU7DGG- Jason Myers (@JayMy_31) March 13, 2019
ESPN reports that Myers intends to sign with the Seattle, where the Jets claimed Myers off waivers from last August.
The Jets claimed Myers off waivers from the Seahawks in August and he ended up having a great season, converting 33 of 36 field-goal attempts, going 6-for-7 on attempts of at least 50 yards and 11-for-12 on attempts between 40 and 49 yards. He went 30-for-33 on extra-point attempts.
Myers, 27, spent his first three NFL seasons with the Jaguars. He was signed by the Seahawks last year but was let go after losing a training-camp battle to Sebastian Janikowski. Now Myers will actually play for Seattle in his second stint with the team.
The 31-year-old Roberts made the Pro Bowl as a returner and became the first Jet to be named a first-team All-Pro since Darrelle Revis in 2011. Roberts had 1,174 kick-return yards and a touchdown while adding 324 punt-return yards and a score.
