The Jets are working out running back Travaris Cadet on Tuesday, according to Aaron Wilson of The Houston Chronicle (Twitter link). Cadet’s familiarity with offensive coordinator John Morton could help foster a deal.
The Jets (and rival Bills) pursued Cadet this offseason, but the Saints ultimately won out. Later, the numbers crunch led the Saints to shop Cadet over the summer and release him in early September.
The Appalachian State product played the first three seasons of his career in New Orleans, where he contributed mostly in the passing and return game. In 2014, he enjoyed one of his best campaigns, finishing out with 38 receptions for 296 yards. The running back then had brief stints with the Patriots and 49ers before returning to the Saints in late 2015. In 2016, Cadet appeared in 15 games (one start), hauling in 40 catches for 281 yards and four touchdowns.
The Redskins worked out Cadet earlier this month but did not sign him.
