The New York Jets announced Monday that they’ve signed WR Devin Street and placed WR Quinton Patton on injured reserve.
Patton, 26, is a former fourth-round pick of the 49ers in the 2013 NFL Draft out of Louisiana Tech. He just finished the final year of a four-year, $2.551 million rookie contract that included a $391,500 signing bonus.
Patton went down with a foot injury during Week 15’s game against the Falcons and was subsequently placed on the season-ending injured reserve. The Jets signed him to a one-year $825,000 contract this past March.
In 2016, Patton appeared in 14 games for the 49ers and recorded 37 receptions for 208 yards receiving with no touchdowns. ProFootballFocus rates him as the No. 97 overall wide receiver out of 115 qualifying players.
Street, 26, is a former fifth-round pick of the Cowboys back in 2014. He spent just over two years in Dallas before he was among their final roster cuts coming out of the preseason.
The Patriots signed Street to their practice squad at the start of last season but he lasted just a few weeks in New England. The Colts later added him to their active roster before cutting him loose shortly after this year’s draft.
The Patriots claimed him off of waivers last month before cutting him loose soon after.
In 2016, Street appeared in five games and caught one pass for 20 yards receiving and no touchdowns for the Colts.
