Maybe because they’re uncertain about the status of Eric Decker — and along those lines, Devin Smith — or maybe just because teams are always looking, the Jets worked out a bunch of wide receivers on Tuesday.
It was reportedd earlier Tuesday that the Jets had quarterback-turned-wide receiver Terrelle Pryor and Corey Washington in for a workout. That workout also included wide receivers Josh Lenz, DaVaris Daniels, Titus Davis and Daniel Brown, none of whom have ever played in an NFL game.
Quarterback Bryn Renner, who spent the offseason and preseason with the Ravens, was also on the Jets’ tryout list and could have been there to throw to the receivers.
Pryor’s workout was previously scheduled; Washington tweeted Tuesday afternoon that he won’t be signing with the Jets. Jets Coach Todd Bowles said Tuesday that the team won’t know if Eric Decker can play this week until later in the week after Decker sprained his knee in Monday night’s win.
Smith, a second-round pick, suffered broken ribs and a punctured lung early in training camp and didn’t return to practice until the week of the season opener. He’s been inactive for both games as the Jets play it safe — and slow — with his recovery.
