Jets to Look at Kelley Washington?

NFL.com's Adam Schefter says the Jets are bringing recently released Patriots receiver Kelley Washington in for a visit.

The Jets can change head coaches, but their infatuation with former Patriots players continues.

The Jets are bringing in former Patriots WR and special-teams ace Kelley Washington tonight for a visit, less than 24 hours after New England released him.

Washington will become the latest in a long line of players to ride the shuttle from Boston to New York — or now New Jersey, home of the Jets’ new training facility.

The gamesmanship continues between Foxborough and Florham Park. Maybe the Jets are trying to get information from Washington. Otherwise it is tough to figure this move. This team may look to upgrade its receiving corps this offseason, but Washington has 19 receptions in the past four years. He has played with teams that had plenty of depth at receiver in Cincinnati and New England so his lack of playing time might not necessarily be an indictment of his skills. However, it is tough to see how this is an upgrade over what is on the roster now.

Washington was a standout on special teams with the Pats, but the Jets already have two similar players in Wallace Wright and Brad Smith on the depth chart at receiver. How many wideouts who only offer quality play on special teams can one club have?
