In 38 games since 2010 in Oakland, Ford has caught 57 passes for 848 yards and three touchdowns. He has also averaged 8.6 yards per punt return in limited work and 29.9 yards per kick return with four touchdowns, three of which came back in 2010.
Beyond his special team work, Ford would be connected to the Jets via Sanjay Lal, the former receivers coach in Oakland. Ford has that track star speed that can work on special teams, especially the return game. He would be another potential flier for the Jets who could contribute on special teams with little upside on offense.
