The New York Jets have released wide receiver Josh Bellamy from the Reserve/PUP list, effectively ending his Gang Green career.

It was only a matter of time, really.

On Tuesday, the New York Jets announced Josh Bellamy’s release.

For Bellamy, 31, it was a rough go of it in Florham Park, NJ. Dressing in just seven games last year, the special teams specialist could never stay healthy.

Along with Quincy Enunwa, Bellamy was placed on the season-ending PUP list in early May with a shoulder injury. It was only a matter of time before his Jets career officially ended—the same fate Enunwa suffered earlier in the summer.

Bellamy has tallied 1,019 yards and five scores on 78 grabs over his workmanlike eight-year NFL career. Never starting more than seven games in any one season, the undrafted Louisville product has had to scrape and claw his way to pro football recognition.

Bellamy finishes his Jets career with 20 yards on two receptions.
