Out at Jets’ headquarters, John Idzik and company have been the busy group this weekend, inviting 5 players to minicamp for tryouts next week, three of them veterans.
The three veterans are: TE Kellen Winslow Jr, WR Mike Sims-Walker, and DL Leger Douzable. They have also invited two rookies into the mix to tryout next week, T Mark Jackson and CB Mason Robinson.
Leger Douzable played with the Rams in 2009, followed by the Jaguars from 2010-2011. His time so far in the league has been as a backup, with his best year in 2001, recording 38 tackles and one sack.
Mike Sims-Walker wasn’t a 1,000 yard receiver, not yet. He did get close with the Jacksonville Jaguars, posting back to back 7 TD seasons, and one year with 63 catches for 869 yards.
Winslow is by far my favorite of this group of invitees. Through his years with the Tampa Bay Bucs, Winslow posted 2 seasons with over 70 receptions, and prior to that, 2 seasons with over eighty receptions while a member of the Cleveland Browns.
