Mike Sims-Walker trying out for Jets too

Tight end Kellen Winslow isn’t the only veteran who will try out for the Jets at their minicamp next week.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that wide receiver Mike Sims-Walker will also be working with the Jets in hopes of landing a job with the club. Sims-Walker did not play in the NFL in 2012, seeing his last action with the Rams and Jaguars during the 2011 season and catching 12 passes in six games with the two teams.

That kind of layoff and Sims-Walker’s generally middling contributions would seem to make him a long shot to latch on with the club. At least it does in theory, but reality finds a Jets receiving corps that’s both thin and ailing as the team’s top four receivers have all been sidelined for some or all of offseason work because of injuries. That led Mark Sanchez to joke last week that he doesn’t know the names of the guys catching his passes and it gives Sims-Walker as good a shot at finding work as he’s likely to find anywhere in the league.

Schefter also reports that defensive tackle Leger Douzable will try out for the Jets as well. Douzable’s last regular season work also came with the Jaguars during the 2011 season, although he spent time with the Titans last year.

    Jets need all the help they can get…I think Kellen Winslow can make this team. They still finish last in the East though.

    What happened to Sims-Walker? He was the Jags number one wide out then went to the Rams and then gone.
