NEW YORK (AP) - The New York Jets have signed tight end Kellen Winslow Jr. to a one-year deal after a solid performance during the team's three-day minicamp.
The team announced the signing Friday.
Winslow was brought in on a tryout basis and impressed coach Rex Ryan, who said Thursday that the former Pro Bowl tight end's ``athleticism and his ability to catch the football, it certainly jumps out.''
Winslow, who turns 30 next month, adds depth to a position thin on experience after allowing Dustin Keller to leave as a free agent. Jeff Cumberland, with 32 career catches, was the projected starter, with Konrad Reuland, a solid blocker, and former rugby player Hayden Smith the backups.
Winslow played in just one game last season with New England before asking for his release.
