New York Jets punter Robert Malone had 16 punts, including one for 84 yards during a season-opening win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The New York Jets cut punter Robert Malone two weeks into the National Football League season, replacing him with former Boston College punter Ryan Quigley.

Malone, 25, was in his second season with the Jets after beating out Quigley during training camp and was released after averaging 37.1 net yards per punt this season, the team said on Twitter. That was 28th of the league’s 32 teams. He had 16 punts, including one for 84 yards during a season-opening win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, though his average distance fell to 44.6 yards in a Week 2 loss to the New England Patriots from 48.4 yards per punt in Week 1.

New York also signed linebacker Scott Solomon, released wide receiver Rahsaan Vaughn from the practice squad and added linebacker Danny Lansanah to the practice squad, the team said.
