Cornerback Dimitri Patterson wasn’t the only free agent to visit with the Jets on Monday.
Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports that wide receiver Jacoby Ford and guard/center Rich Ohrnberger also met with the team.
The Jets’ interest in Ford was reported a couple of weeks ago, but he had not visited with the team before Monday. Ford played for current Jets wide receivers coach Sanjay Lal in Oakland and is coming off a year that saw him catch 13 passes in 14 games for the Raiders. Ford missed the entire 2012 season with a Lisfranc injury, but flashed good speed as both a receiver and kick returner before the injury.
The Jets have signed Eric Decker this offseason and Jeremy Kerley will likely retain a leading role at receiver, but the rest of the group will sort itself out over the rest of the offseason and summer.
Ohrnberger played 13 games and started once for the Chargers last season. With guards Willie Colon and Brian Winters and center Nick Mangold returning for the Jets, Ohrnberger would likely be looking at a reserve role with the Jets.
