When the Jets weren’t meeting with players who have played with the Bears on Friday, they were meeting with one who visited with the Bears this week.

According to multiple reports, tight end Jermaine Gresham met with the Jets. He visited with the Bears as well this week.

Gresham made 12 starts for the Cardinals last season, but was mainly used as a blocker in coach Bruce Arians’ offense as he finished the year with 18 catches for 223 yards and a touchdown. He was a more frequent target through the air during his five years with the Bengals, catching 280 passes over that span.

The Jets got underwhelming production from their tight ends in both areas last year, so Gresham would probably be of interest even if they didn’t cut Jeff Cumberland with Kellen Davis hitting free agency.
