New York Jets Release Former STAB Star Brian Linthicum

July 9, 2012

The New York Jets have waived undrafted rookie tight end Brian Linthicum.

Linthicum, a 6'5", 245-pounder out of Michigan State, was one of the 10 undrafted free agents signed by the Jets immediately after the 2012 draft. But he was sidelined early in the offseason period with a quadriceps injury and wasn't able to work in any team drills through the full-squad minicamp that ended in mid-June.

The 24-year-old former STAB standout began his college career at Clemson but transferred in 2008 and began a three-year career with the Spartans in '09. In his three seasons he had 69 receptions for 860 yards and three touchdowns.
