The Jets are nearing a deal with former Bears wide receiver Josh Bellamy, SNY.tv's Ralph Vacchiano confirmed.
Bellamy and the Jets are close to a two-year deal with $2.75 million guaranteed at signing that could be worth as much as $7 million, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapaport.
Bellamy, could be the second wide receiver to join the Jets in free agency, joining former Redskins receiver Jamison Crowder, who agreed to a three-year, $28.5 million deal with New York on Monday.

The 29-year-old Bellamy totaled 117 receiving yards, 14 catches and one receiving touchdown last season for Chicago. In 75 career games, he has 76 catches for 999 yards and five touchdowns.
