It’s been a quiet offseason for free agent tight end Kellen Winslow, who claimed in March that multiple teams were interested in him but hasn’t seen that alleged interest turn into a contract offer. But Winslow has finally found a team that’s at least interested enough to take a look.

Winslow will get a tryout at the Jets’ minicamp next week.

On Twitter, Winslow showed his excitement by tweeting the “J-E-T-S JETS JETS JETS!!!” cheer.

A bad knee has plagued Winslow since the infamous motorcycle accident that ended his 2005 season before it began, and the 29-year-old Winslow played in just one regular-season game last season, catching one pass with the Patriots. But the Jets think he has enough left that he’s at least worth a look. We’ll see at the end of minicamp on Thursday whether they also think he’s worth signing to a contract.
