Jets Trying Out Veteran KR Jakeem Grant

According to Tom Pelissero, the Jets are trying out veteran KR Jakeem Grant at their minicamp this week.

Jakeem Grant

Grant, 31, is a former sixth-round pick of the Dolphins back in 2016. He was entering the final year of his four-year, $2.48 million rookie contract when the Dolphins signed him to a four-year extension worth up to $24 million in 2019. 

Miami restructured that contract entering the 2021 season before he was acquired by the Bears in exchange for a 2023 sixth-round draft pick. He was testing the free agent market when he signed a three-year, $13.8 million deal with Cleveland, which he restructured in 2023.

Grant has missed the last two seasons due to injury and recently visited with the Saints.

In 2021, Grant appeared in four games for the Dolphins and 11 games for the Bears, recording 11 receptions for 132 yards (12.0 YPC) and two touchdowns, to go along with five rushing attempts for 33 yards. He also recorded 539 kickoff return yards and 309 punt return yards and a touchdown.

We will have more on Grant as it becomes available.
