Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports that the Jets brought in free agent RB Jahad Thomas for a workout on Wednesday.
Thomas, 21, wound up signing a three-year, $1.66 million contract with the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent out of Temple back in May. He stands to make base salaries of $465,000 and $555,000 over the first two years of the agreement.
The Cowboys waived Thomas with an injury designation a few weeks ago and he later reverted to their injured reserve list. Dallas elected to cut him loose from injured reserve on Monday.
During his four-year college career, Thomas rushed for 2,599 yards on 563 carries (4.6 YPC) to go along with 69 receptions for 998 yards receiving and 38 total touchdowns over the course of 46 games.
