The Jets worked out free agent tight end Jordan Matthews this week, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Matthews played only five games the past two seasons, making four receptions. He is trying something new in hopes of prolonging his career by switching from receiver to tight end.

He added 30 pounds and spent the summer working out at Louisville with receivers coach Gunter Brewer and assistant tight ends coach Stu Holt.

Matthews, 29, weighed 215 pounds as a receiver.

He entered the league as a second-round choice of the Eagles in 2014.

Matthews has 274 career catches for 3,288 yards and 22 touchdowns in his career.

  1. He’s always been a decent worker and a good hands guy but never had anything close to elite speed. If he can move at all with the new weight, he could make it another season or two as a TE.

  2. As good as he was at Vandy I can’t believe he hasn’t worked out in the NFL
