Jets sign WR Jacoby Ford
The Jets signed former Raiders wideout and kick returner Jacoby Ford to a deal Tuesday. Terms of the deal weren't immediately disclosed.
Ford, a speed merchant, has had a difficult time staying on the field the past three seasons. He missed all of 2012 due to a Lisfranc injury and has missed 26 of his past 48 games. He'll turn 27 years old in July.
Ford had a lot of fantasy upside entering 2011, coming off of a 2010 rookie campaign in which he scored seven total touchdowns. He has scored twice since and was a healthy scratch at the end of last season for the Raiders. He'll vie for a roster spot in New York. The interest he built up in fantasy circles as a rookie seems like forever ago.
