Jets release Tongue after one season

HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (June 15, 2005) -- Safety Reggie Tongue was released by the New York Jets after starting all 16 games last season.

Tongue played just one season with the Jets and had the second longest interception return in the team's postseason history with an 85-yard touchdown run against Pittsburgh. The longest was 98 yards by Darrol Ray in 1982.

A second-round draft pick in 1996 by Kansas City, Tongue played four years with the Chiefs and four years with Seattle.
