Jets Worked Out 3 Players Including OLB Shaq Riddick & WR Donteea Dye

Rich Cimini of ESPN reports that the Jets brought in three players for workouts on Friday including OLB Shaq Riddick, DE Farrington Huguenin and WR Donteea Dye.

Dye, 23, wound up signing on with the Buccaneers as an undrafted free agent out of Heidelberg back in May of last year. He was unfortunately among the Buccaneers’ roster cuts coming out of the preseason, but was later signed to their practice squad and eventually promoted to their active roster in October of last year.

Tampa Bay waived Dye during the preseason with an injury designation and he later reverted to their injured reserve list. The Bucs cut him loose an injury settlement a few days later.

In 2015, Dye appeared in 10 games for the Buccaneers and caught 11 passes for 132 yards receiving and one touchdown. He also contributed 37 kick return yards.

Riddick, 23, is a former fifth-round pick of the Cardinals back in 2015. He lasted just over a year in Arizona before he was waived coming out of the preseason.

Arizona later signed Riddick to their practice squad before cutting him loose a few weeks ago.

During his senior year at West Virginia, Riddick recorded 25 tackles, nine tackles for a loss and six sacks over the course of nine games.
