When he hit the free agent market, Chaz Schilens had his eye on playing for the New York Jets.

He wanted to play for his former position coach, Sanjay Lal. He also knew he would have the chance to make his mark right away.

“We’ll see how everything shakes out, but I’m planning on doing good things,” Schilens said Thursday night at MetLife Stadium after signing autographs for fans as a part of the Jets’ 2012 Draft Party. “I have an opportunity to play and I’m just going to take advantage of it.”

He saw opportunities as a starter in Oakland, before injuries forced him to miss 19 games in 2009 and 2010. In four seasons with the Raiders, he had 72 catches and seven touchdowns in 44 games. He played in 15 games last season and had 23 catches and two scores.
