- The Jets also waived/injured CB Dashaun Phillips.
Amaro, 23, has been dealing with a shoulder injury for awhile now and he was not making progress in recent days, according to reports. His specific injury is a labrum tear.
He’s entering the second year of his four-year, $4.29 million rookie contract that included $2.45 million guaranteed.
In 2014, Amaro appeared in 14 games and caught 38 passes for 345 yards receiving and two touchdowns.
Vickerson, 32, signed a one-year contract worth $950,000 with the Jets back in March.
In 2014, Vickerson appeared in 15 games for the Chiefs in 2014 and recorded 12 tackles and a pass defense. Pro Football Focus has him down for playing 175 snaps last year to go along with a decent rating as a run-defender.
