Adam Caplan reports that the Jets have scheduled a visit with free agent wide receiver Donnie Avery.
The first receiver selected in the 2008 draft, Avery flashed promise during his first two NFL seasons with 100 receptions for 1,263 yards and eight touchdowns. Avery tore his right ACL in August of 2010, however, and struggled to get on the field throughout last year.
He did catch three balls for 45 yards and a touchdown in Week Seventeen with the Titans.
This will be Avery’s first known visit of the 2012 free agency period. The Jets are looking to add to a receiver corps that includes Chaz Schilens, Jeremy Kerley, and Patrick Turner behind top wideout Santonio Holmes.
Avery can add speed to the unit. His forty times at the Houston Cougars’ 2008 Pro Day were 4.34 and 4.35.
