The Jets are adding a receiver best known for his speed.
The club said Tuesday it had signed Raiders wideout Jacoby Ford, whom the Jets hosted on a free agent visit on Monday. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
A fifth-year pro from Clemson, the 26-year-old Ford has caught 57 passes for 848 yards and three touchdowns in his NFL career, all with Oakland, with whom he had spent his entire career. He has also returned 75 kickoffs for 1,874 yards and four touchdowns, and he’s tallied a pair of rushing TDs in 19 carries.
Ford (5-9, 190) hauled in 13 passes for 99 yards in 14 games in 2013.
