NEW YORK — The New York Jets released cornerback Antonio Cromartie, a cost-cutting move that will save the team $8 million in salary cap space.

The decision Monday marks the second time in three years that the Jets have cut Cromartie, who was re-signed last offseason after a year in Arizona. After reuniting with Darrelle Revis in New York, Cromartie struggled at times midway through the season before having a solid finish.

Cromartie will turn 32 in April and the Jets appear ready to move on, possibly with one of their younger cornerbacks such as Marcus Williams, who led the team with six interceptions, or Dee Milliner, a 2013 first-rounder who has been beset by injuries.

Cromartie had no interceptions for the first time since his rookie season in 2006 with San Diego, with whom he spent his first four seasons.

EAGLES: Safety Malcolm Jenkins has agreed to a five-year contract.

Jenkins was about to enter the final season of a three-year, $15 million deal he signed as a free agent in 2014.

He now will be with the Eagles through 2020 if he plays out the new contract.

The 28-year-old Jenkins has been one of the more consistent performers on a defense that often struggled under former coach Chip Kelly.

Over the past two seasons, Jenkins led the Eagles in tackles (233), passes defensed (29) and interceptions (five).

COLTS: Indianapolis released linebackers Jonathan Newsome and Andy Studebaker.

Newsome was arrested last week on charges of marijuana possession. Newsome was a fifth-round draft pick in 2014 and had a promising rookie season. In 30 games, he made only three starts and finished with 61 tackles, 71/2 sacks, three forced fumbles and two passes defensed.

Studebaker re-joined the Colts in mid-December and played primarily on special teams. He had 70 tackles and 21/2 sacks in 97 games and had 68 tackles on special teams.

BRONCOS: Denver signed free agent tight end Richard Gordon and defensive lineman Phil Taylor.

Gordon is a sixth-year pro and a big blocker who spent seven weeks with Denver last season, playing in one game. He has played in 35 career games with the Raiders, Chiefs, Titans and Broncos.

Taylor is a fifth-year pro who was out of football last year after playing for the Cleveland Browns from 2011-14. He was the 21st overall draft pick out of Baylor in 2011.

GIANTS: Harry Hulmes III, a former New York Giants executive who spent more than 50 years in professional football, has died. He was 88.

Hulmes joined the Giants in 1984 as an assistant to then-general manager George Young.
