Jets let go of Po'uha

The New York Jets officially released veteran defensive tackle Sione Po'uha on Wednesday, effectively ending his eight-year tenure with the club.

Po'uha had signed an extension with New York last offseason after playing in each of the team's games since 2007, but a back injury limited him to 12 contests last season and he became another one of the Jets' 2013 cap casualties.

In 106 career games, the 34-year-old registered 263 tackles, 4.5 sacks and 11 passes defensed.
