Tajh Boyd didn’t make the final cut with the Jets.

The New York Jets decided not to make Tajh Boyd part of their 53 man roster and cut the former Clemson star Saturday afternoon. The Jets selected the Tigers record setting quarterback in the seventh round of the May NFL draft.

Boyd did his best to make is case to earn a roster sport Thursday when he completed seven of 12 passes for 92 yards and a touchdown. He was sacked twice, but also ran three times for 16 yards.

The Jets are going with Matt Simms and Michael Vick as the two QBs behind starter Geno Smith.

Boyd still has a shot to stick around in New York if the team elects to sign him to the practice squad.
