NEW YORK — The New York Jets have released cornerback Darryl Roberts after four seasons with the team as a sometime starter and valuable backup.

The move Saturday saves the Jets $6 million on the salary cap for the upcoming season.

New York has now cut both of last year's starters at cornerback after releasing Trumaine Johnson earlier in the week.

Agent Brett Tessler also announced the Jets agreed to terms with veteran offensive lineman Josh Andrews.

A person with direct knowledge of the deal said New York and former Los Angeles Rams safety Marqui Christian have also agreed to terms on a one-year deal worth up to $2 million.
