Ex-Jets linebacker was ‘fired’ on his day off, but a reunion is still possible.

The NFL can be a difficult business, and that adage has never been more true than this week, as the NFL trade deadline approaches.

With so many major choices still up in the air and roster volatility, some players were given new opportunities while others were given the pink slip.

November 3, 2021 — The Jets Zone (@TheJets Zone)

Derrick Henry, the Tennessee Titans’ standout running back, was lost for the foreseeable future over the weekend. The squad was obliged to make several unexpected movements as a result of the unexpected injury, which had various consequences.

Tennessee signed veteran tailbacks Adrian Peterson and D’Oonta Foreman, and released ex-New York Jets linebacker Avery Williamson in a corresponding roster move.

Despite this, the eight-year veteran remained unfazed, tweeting, “crap… I got fired on my day off (with a laughing sobbing emoji).”


On my day off, I was fired.

November 3, 2021 — Avery Williamson (@AWilliamson54)

Williamson spent the first four years of his NFL career with the Titans before joining the Jets on a big-money free-agent deal in 2018.

After a stellar first season in which he racked up 120 tackles, three sacks, and six pass deflections, Williamson tore his ACL and missed the entire 2019 season.

He was eventually sent to the Pittsburgh Steelers in exchange for a 2022 fifth-round pick, and he has since bounced around the league. Williamson was most recently with the Titans before being released this week.

A Possibility of a Reasonable Reunion

Now that Williamson has returned to the open seas, it may be the ideal time for a reunion.

With a slew of injuries, the Jets’ linebacking corps has disintegrated.
