The New York Jets have waived quarterback Bryce
Petty Cheap
Justin Reid Jersey
, parting ways with their 2015 fourth-round
draft pick after three seasons.

The move Thursday comes a week after the Jets drafted USC quarterback Sam
Darnold with the No. 3 overall pick.

New York currently has four quarterbacks on its roster, including Darnold,
Josh McCown, Teddy Bridgewater and Christian Hackenberg.

Petty played in 10 games with the Jets, including seven starts, and threw for
1,353 yards and four touchdowns with 10 interceptions. The former Baylor star
started New York’s final three games last season – all losses – after McCown was
lost for the year with a broken left wrist.

Petty’s lone win as a starter came in 2016, when he filled in for an injured
Ryan Fitzpatrick at San Francisco and rallied New York from a 14-point deficit
to a 23-17 overtime victory.

After winning just six games a year ago as one of the NFL's big
disappointments Youth
Troy Apke Jersey
, the Oakland Raiders had plenty of needs in their
first draft since bringing Jon Gruden back for a second stint as coach.

They opted to bypass some of the most highly regarded defensive players to
take UCLA tackle Kolton Miller after trading down five spots to No. 15, hoping
to bolster the offensive line in front of quarterback Derek Carr.

"He's a big man that can move his feet," general manager Reggie McKenzie
said. "He's played left tackle and right tackle. He's been an offensive lineman
pretty much his whole life. He understands the game. He's an excellent athlete
who has great potential. We feel really good about adding him to the Raiders
roster."

After the San Francisco 49ers took the top-rated tackle in the draft, Mike
McGlinchey, with the ninth overall pick, the Raiders opted to move down from 10
even with talented defensive players Minkah Fitzpatrick, Derwin James and
Tremaine Edmunds on the board. They traded down five spots with Arizona, adding
a third- and fifth-round pick in the deal.

Oakland still went with an offensive lineman at No. 15 Authentic

available.

The Raiders weren't done getting help for Carr on the first day of the draft,
trading the third-round pick they got from the Cardinals to Pittsburgh for
talented but troubled receiver Martavis Bryant.

Bryant caught 17 touchdowns in 36 games for the Steelers, but was suspended
twice for drug violations. He missed four games in 2015 and all of the 2016
season.

Bryant returned last spring but was quickly surpassed by JuJu Smith-Schuster
on the depth chart. He asked for a trade in late September and was deactivated
for a game after calling out Smith-Schuster in a post on social media.

The 6-foot-4 Bryant has the size and speed to give Carr a serious downfield
threat and Oakland a better option at third receiver to go along with Amari
Cooper and Jordy Nelson. Bryant averaged 15.3 yards per reception with the
Steelers.

"He's what you're looking for as a receiver," McKenzie said. "He can play
big, play fast and he makes plays. We think he can be a dominating receiver for
Derek."

This is the Raiders' first draft since bringing back Gruden for a second
stint in Oakland. Gruden replaced the fired Jack Del Rio after last season and
was given a 10-year contract to become the head of the organization.

While McKenzie remained as general manager and was involved heavily in draft
preparation, Gruden is the man who now has the final word on picks for Oakland.
Offensive line coach Tom Cable was high on Miller.

Gruden has said the Raiders needed better play at right tackle to protect
Carr, especially in a division that features elite pass rushers like Joey Bosa
and Melvin Ingram on the Chargers Youth Carolina Panthers
Jerseys
, Von Miller and first-round pick Bradley Chubb in Denver,
and Justin Houston in Kansas City.

The Raiders signed Breno Giacomini to a one-year deal to play right tackle
but Miller could take that spot while being groomed to move to the left side.
Donald Penn turns 35 on Friday and is coming off a season-ending foot
injury.

"I'm stoked," Miller said. "I'm ready to get going there and compete and
learn from the older guys. There's a lot of experience surrounding me. I'm ready
to embrace it."

Miller allowed two sacks and 16 total quarterback pressures in 579 pass
blocking snaps last season, according to Pro Football Focus, ranking 17th in
efficiency.

"When you're talking about pass protection and staying in front of your guy,
that's what he does," McKenzie said. "He's got the length, he's got the great
feet. You talk about getting to the second level and pulling. This guy has a lot
of talent. We think in our scheme and coach Cabes working with him Authentic Bo

, he'll flourish."

The Raiders still have one pick in the second, third and fourth rounds, three
in the fifth, four in the sixth and one in the seventh.

Oakland also waived defensive tackle Darius Latham.
