Jets to release kicker Brien

Doug Brien, whose tenure as the Jets' kicker essentially ended when the team selected Ohio State's Mike Nugent in the second round of the draft, has been informed that he will be released, a team official confirmed yesterday.

Brien, whose two misses in the AFC divisional playoff loss at Pittsburgh all but sealed his fate, was excused from two days of organized team practice that began yesterday and a three-day minicamp beginning Friday, the official said.

Because Brien is held in high regard among teammates, coaches and the front office, he is likely to be released quickly. Certainly, it will be done long before he is due a $375,000 roster bonus June 1. The Minnesota Vikings, who would have selected Nugent had the Jets passed, are interested in Brien.

Fullback Jerald Sowell, said to be unhappy with his contract, did not attend practice yesterday, according to a person with knowledge of the situation. Also, despite speculation that the Jets would be a logical destination for Houston Texans cornerback Aaron Glenn, it has not been a major topic among the team brass. Glenn has been given permission to seek a trade.

The Jets reportedly agreed to terms with at least two undrafted free agents, LB John Pickens (Northwestern) and OT Henry Tellis (Troy State).

Whenever we discuss kickers on this board it ALWAYS leads to someone saying "tynes need competition in camp bla bla."

he does need competition. However, I remember Elliot. I don't want Brien. But tynes missed multiple XPs last year, and we need a kickoff man. come on, seriously, tynes needs competition.

Brien is PRECISELY the kind of guy we SHOULD bring in. He's a vet that can push Tynes, without any hope of him actually WINNING the job. :D
