Jets release longtime starting G Moore, save $7 million

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- The New York Jets released Brandon Moore, a starter at guard for the past five seasons.

Moore became a starter at left guard late in 2003 and started 73 straight games at right guard after missing three games in 2004 because of injury.

The release on Thursday, designed to help give the team salary-cap space, came one day after the team agreed to cut starting wide receiver Laveranues Coles. NFL.com's Steve Wyche reports that Moore was scheduled to receive a $7 million roster bonus.

The Jets also cut running back Noah Herron and defensive end Sean Conover, both signed in January.
