Hairston was cut by the team yesterday as it trimmed the roster down to 53 players.
Hairston, 26, is a former fifth-round pick of the Colts back in 2017. He was entering the third year of his four-year, $2.66 million contract when he was traded to the Jets in 2019.
In 2019, Hairston appeared in 11 games for the Jets and recorded 24 tackles, one interception and three pass defenses. Pro Football Focus had him rated as the No. 93 cornerback out of 115 qualifying players.
