Mychal Rivera slated to meet with Jets

The Jets learned this week that tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins will be suspended for the first two weeks of the 2017 season and they’ll reportedly kick off next week by visiting with another player at the position.

Peter Schrager of FOX Sports reports that the Jets will have Mychal Rivera in for a visit on Monday.

Rivera was a 2013 sixth-round pick by the Raiders and has played in 61 games for the team over the last four seasons. He set career highs with 58 catches and 534 receiving yards in 2014 and has caught 50 passes for 472 yards during the last two campaigns.

The tight end hasn’t been a major part of the offense for the Jets since Todd Bowles took over as head coach before the 2015 season. Rivera’s addition might not change that, but a new offensive coordinator in John Morton could lead to more attention being paid to the position.

  1. just a number games with T/E Walford, Smith, Holmes, and the recent signing of Jared Cook, he was expendable for the Raiders….good guy, wish him nothing but the best wherever he lands.

  2. Underutilized in Oakland, hope he lands somewhere that will give him some looks. Has to the potential to be a big playmaker if targeted.

    I agree 100%, he was really underutilized and he has very good hands.

    All the best to him.

  4. He caught the ball more often than not.

    Cook had better perform and stay healthy.

    Any word on Reggie solidifying the D, or are we looking to stockpile some blue chip DL, LB and CBs via the draft…

    An above average offense couple with a Top 5 defense has a better chance to win the SB than having it the other way around.

    The offense is SOLID.

    Bring the D into the Top 10 (at a minimum) and then we’re cooking with peanut oil.

    Oh yeah, don’t forget to make sure the MVP doesn’t snap his leg in WK 16. That’ll make it, you know, feasible.

    Carry on.

    Go RAIDERS

  5. 18 catches and 1 td. Poor at run blocking. Is that what the Jets really need? It ain’t easy being a fan of the green and white. Shm
