New York Jets work out WR Greg Little

BY foxsports • July 28, 2015

It appears that the New York Jets aren't done making additions to the team this offseason. On Monday, the Jets reportedly worked out former Cleveland Browns and Cincianatti Bengals wide receiver Greg Little.

Already somewhat crowded at the position with Brandon Marshall, Devin Smith, Eric Decker and Jeremy Kerley, the Jets apparently want to add more weapons for Geno Smith -- and understandably so.

Smith has struggled in his first two seasons in the NFL, throwing just 25 touchdowns to 34 interceptions. He'll need all the help he can get in his third season if he wants to keep the starting quarterback job. Little could help in that regard, as he was a solid wideout while with the Browns. In his rookie season, he caught 61 passes for 709 yards, but both of those numbers have decreased each of the past three seasons.

The former second-round pick could look to revive his career in New York after a putrid season with the Bengals in which he started just one game and caught six passes all year. For the Jets, he could be a backup plan in case the injury bug hits the wide receiver group.
