Brian Costello of the New York Post reports that the Jets worked out free agent RB Stephen Houston on Friday.
- Aaron Wilson reports that the Jets also worked out RB Shaquille Cooper.
Houston, 25, originally signed on with the Patriots as an undrafted free agent out of Indiana back in May of 2014. Houston was, unfortunately, waived during the preseason before later signing on with the Steelers.
Houston’s time in Pittsburgh was also short-lived, as he was once again placed on waivers after just a few weeks with the Steelers. The Ravens signed him to a contract at the start of the preseason last year but he was unfortunately among their final roster cuts.
Baltimore later signed him to their practice squad and later brought him back on a future/reserve contract this past January. However, he was waived shortly after this year’s NFL Draft.
During his college career at Indiana, Houston ran for 2,304 yards on 424 carries (5.4 YPC) and scored 29 total touchdowns.
