As the Jets try to improve on their 1-4 record, they’re kicking tires on a four-time Pro Bowler.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the Jets gave fullback Marcel Reece a tryout on Tuesday.

The Raiders cut Reece last month, after the completion of a four-game suspension for violating the PED policy. He has had a tryout with the Patriots since being released.

Reece was voted to the Pro Bowl in 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015. He was ineligible to participate last year, due to the suspension.

The Jets also worked out linebacker Randell Johnson and tight end Henry Mitchell.

    “Reece was voted to the Pro Bowl in 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015. He was ineligible to participate last year, due to the suspension.”

    Last year was 2015

    New age shoddy writing. It’s all over web editions of newspapers. The rush to get it out.

    Reece is a good player, and the rare FB who is also an effective runner/receiver. Surprised he’s still available

    nomoreseasontix,

    You might want to try actually reading. All it says was he was voted in. You can be voted in but still not allowed to play.

    What about shoddy reading? It’s all over the web editions of newspapers. The rush to not comprehend what was written.

    Jets need all the help they can get. He could be a good short yardage back I would think.

    Very talented and versatile player I am sad to see him go. He has been a strong leader on the team and was under utilized the last few years, he does whatever he is asked to do and made plays when given the chance. Thank you Marcel for all you have done for the Raider Nation.

    What they need to do is get someone to replace Forte, this guy has lost more than a step or two.
