The Jets brought in Raiders linebacker Jon Alston for a visit on Thursday, The Star-Ledger has learned and the team confirmed.
Alston, a four-year veteran, wasn't tendered by the Raiders, making him an unrestricted free agent who can sign with any NFL team. A former third-round pick out of Stanford by the Rams, he had 23 tackles last season in nine games, four starts, before going on injured reserve following a pair of concussions.
The Jets likely view him as a back-up outside linebacker and special teams performer.
I guess they are trying to give Westhoff some toys after letting Murrell and Wright go. Nothing to get too excited about.
