The Jets have announced they have signed 5th year veteran Marquess Wilson:

The newest Jet has spent his entire 5 year career with the Chicago Bears after being drafted in the 7th round of the 2013 NFL Draft.

Wilson has totalled 56 receptions for 777 yards and 3 touchdowns with the Bears while battling a couple of serious injuries including a broken foot and broken clavicle.

Marquess was only active for just three games last year after starting the season on the PUP list and finishing it on IR, he recorded 9 receptions for 160 yards and a single touchdown. His best year without a doubt came in 2015 where he recorded 28 receptions for 464 yards.

At 6'4 and just over 200lb's, he'll add a little bit of height to the receiver unit, however with so many players vying for a position at that particular position group, he's no lock to make the final roster.
