Aug. 21, 2000
HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (AP) _ Third-year tight end Blake Spence was waived Monday by the New York Jets.
Spence, a fifth-round selection in the 1998 draft, played 16 games in two seasons with the team. He had four receptions for 20 yards and one touchdown, against Dallas last season on a 2-yard pass from Ray Lucas.
His most memorable play came in the 1998 AFC championship game, when Spence blocked a punt that New York recovered at the Denver 1. It set up a touchdown.
Spence was beaten out by rookie Jermaine Wiggins.
