NFL teams can either try out or visit with free agents. Usually, when more than one or two players show up on the same day, it’s for a tryout. Rarely is there a mass visit.
The Jets had a mass visit on Friday.
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, six players visited with the team: tight end Kyle Carter, defensive back Winston Guy, running back Stephen Houston, tight end M.J. McFarland, quarterback Joel Stave, and defensive back Ronald Zamort.
It’s possible that the players were indeed worked out, and that the Jets simply checked the wrong box on the form.
