Raymond was waived by the Jets on Tuesday.
Raymond's release appears to be a direct result of his muffed punt in Sunday's loss to the Raiders. He served as the Jets' primary return man through the first two weeks of the season, but that responsibility might now be Jeremy Kerley's.
It appears the Jets won't waste time carving out a significant role for Raymond on special teams just days after claiming him off waivers. The second-year player out of Holy Cross offers some dynamism as a returner, but given his 5-foot-9 and 160-pound frame, ball security could be an issue.
Raymond figures to be a special teams guy more than an offensive weapon for the Jets this season. Even with a weak wide receiving corps, Raymond is comfortably buried on the team's depth chart. Raymond spent the majority of his training camp in Denver.
Raymond (hand) has been turning heads thus far during training camp, Nick Kosmider of The Denver Post reports.
Raymond was sidelined in June during the team's organized workouts due to a hand injury. However, he has been making up for lost time by standing out in practice. The 23-year-old played in just one game during his rookie season, and is battling for a roster spot among a plethora of receiving candidates.
Raymond is nursing a hand injury, Mike Klis of KUSA Channel 9 reports.
The 22-year-old was waived by the Broncos last season during final roster cuts, but ultimately rejoined the organization as a member of the practice squad late in 2016. The hand injury certainly won't help Raymond's chances of making the roster in 2017, but it doesn't look to be anything that will prevent him from taking part in training camp. His best route to making the roster will be shining on the Broncos' special teams units.
