The Jets are scheduled to be back on the practice field in about an hour but they've also been working on adding some pass catching reinforcements behind the scenes:
The #Jets are planning to sign veteran FA WR Donte Moncrief, source said, once he passes through his COVID-19 protocols. The former #Colts starter spent time with the #Panthers and #Steelers last year and recently worked out for NYJ, as well. He’ll provide depth.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) August 29, 2020
In 2015, Moncrief caught a career-high 64 passes for over 700 yards, but he's been disappointing since then. He caught just four passes for 18 yards last season and had some issues with dropping passes.
Two of his five career 100-yard games have come against the Jets, including in 2018 when he burned Trumaine Johnson for a long touchdown while with the Jags.
The 27-year old former third round pick is 6'2" and ran a 4.40 at the scouting combine.
