The defensive end was the sixth overall pick in the 2008 draft out of Ohio State. Gholston made just five starts and didn't record a sack in 45 regular-season games.
Gholston didn't play in any of the Jets' playoff games last season.
The Jets also said Wednesday they had released backup tight end Ben Hartsock. The eight-year pro had one catch in seven games last season.
