The New York Jets brought in three players for tryouts on Wednesday including QB Aaron Murray, WR Brian Tyms and WR Kyle Prater.
None of the players were immediately signed to contracts but it’s likely that they’re being considered for future/reserve contracts.
Murray, 26, is a former fifth-round pick of the Chiefs back in 2014. He’s was in the third year of his four-year, $2,402,424 rookie contract and set to make a base salary of $600,000 for the 2016 season when the Chiefs elected to waive him coming out of the preseason.
The Cardinals later signed him to their practice squad but he ultimately lasted less than a week in Arizona. Murray signed on to the Eagles practice squad a day later and finished out the year in Philadelphia but wasn’t signed to a futures deal after the season.
Murray has yet to appear in an NFL game.
Tyms, 27, originally signed on with the 49ers as an undrafted free agent out of back in 2012. He had brief stints with the Dolphins and Browns before catching on with the Patriots in July of 2014.
Tyms returned to New England on a one-year deal last year, but was waived during the preseason. The Colts elected to sign him to a contract back in April before later placing him on injured reserve and releasing him with a settlement not long after.
In 2014, Tyms appeared in 11 games for the Patriots and caught five passes for 82 yards receiving and a single touchdown.
