This past season was arguably his best, as the 26-year-old finished the campaign with 37 catches for 408 yards. Patton also has brief experience as a running back, kick returner, and special teamer.

Meanwhile, Street saw a reduced roll with the Colts this past season. After appearing in 31 games with the Cowboys between 2014 and 2015, the 26-year-old only made five appearances in 2016, hauling in a single catch for 20 yards. Over his career, the 2014 fifth-round pick has collected 10 receptions for 152 yards and one touchdown. Besides the Colts and Cowboys, Street also had two separate stints with the Patriots.

Street could have an opportunity to contribute behind Eric DeckerQuincy Enunwa, and Robby Anderson. The Jets are also rostering ArDarius StewartChad HansenCharone Peake, and Jalin Marshall, who is facing a four-game suspension.
