In a move to bolster a struggling offense, the New York Jets will work out two veteran offensive players. TE Kellen Winslow Jr and WR Mike Sims-Walker will attend one of the clubs minicamps next week and will undergo a tryout with the club on Tuesday.
The Jets have a need at the tight end position after losing Dustin Keller to free agency. Keller is now with the Miami Dolphins. Winslow has a history of knee injuries but when healthy, can make a contribution offensively. Winslow has been known as a disruptive force in the locker room during his time in the league. He was the leading pass catcher for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after the 2011 season but was shipped out of town by rookie head coach Greg Schiano. Winslow was traded to the Seattle Seahawks last offseason to the Seattle Seahawks as Schiano cleaned house, removing players that didn’t agree with his hard nosed philosophy.
