The New York Jets selected Polite 68th overall in the third round. Early in the draft process, there was talk that Polite could be a first-round selection, but he fell on the big board after a disappointing combine performance. He also didn’t perform well during his interviews at the combine.

The Jets elected to take a chance on the “talented” defensive end, but he wasn’t able to earn a spot out of the preseason. The Seahawks picked him up for their practice squad, but they’ve apparently had enough of him too less than a month later.

Now, before it even began, Polite’s NFL career may be finished.
