Free agent running back Travaris Cadet took a visit with the Jets today, the club announced in a press release.
Cadet, 28, has spent the majority of his career with the Saints, though he did have short stints with the 49ers and Patriots in 2015. Last year, Cadet settled back into his familiar passing down role, as he caught 41 balls from Drew Brees, managing 281 yards and four touchdowns in the process. Cadet wasn’t asked to carry the ball much, as he posted just four rushes for 19 yards.
Cadet has also spent a good deal of his career returning kicks, and that’s the role he would likely play with the Jets. With Matt Forte entrenched as the club’s starting back, and Bilal Powell the designated receiver, Cadet wouldn’t seem to have much of a niche on offense in New York.
