Former First-Round Pick WR A.J. Jenkins Among 24 Players Trying Out For Jets

The New York Jets announced that they have invited 24 players to try out for their team during their rookie minicamp this weekend.

The most notable player among this group is former first-round pick WR A.J. Jenkins.

Jenkins, 25, was taken with the No. 30 overall pick in the 2012 draft by the San Francisco 49ers. However, he lasted just a year with the team before he was traded to the Chiefs in return for fellow draft bust Jonathan Baldwin.

Kansas City ultimately elected to release Jenkins back in February and this is his first reported interest since then.

Jenkins has appeared in just 28 games over the course of three season and made three starts. In three years, he’s caught 17 passes for 223 yards receiving and no touchdowns.

The rest of the players trying out for the Jets includes:

  • DL Rony Barrow, Bethune-Cookman

  • TE Steve Borden, Kentucky
  • C Betim Bjuari, Rutgers
  • FB J.C. Copeland, LSU
