NEW YORK (AP)

A marketing agent for T.J. Conley says that the New York Jets have released the punter five days before the team's regular-season opener against the Buffalo Bills.

Chuck Vine of Titan Sports Group tells The Associated Press on Tuesday that he's ''disappointed, but confident he'll be playing this season.'' The team had not immediately announced the move, which was first reported by the New York Post.

The Jets brought in some competition for Conley, who beat out Travis Baltz during training camp and Spencer Lanning last week, and his job appeared to be safe. He was the only punter on the team's roster.

The 27-year-old Conley averaged 42.7 yards per punt last season, and tied for third in the NFL by dropping 32 kicks inside the 20-yard line.
