The Jets began their search to bolster their secondary on Saturday by meeting with former Texans corner Kevin Johnson, per multiple reports.
The 26-year-old was a former first-round pick but has been marred by injuries in his young career.
He missed all of last season after sustaining two concussions within a month of each other, the latter coming in Week 1 against the Patriots which led to him being shut down for the year.
Johnson has met with neurologists and has been medically cleared to play again but the Texans released him earlier this week instead of picking up his fifth-year option.
If healthy, Johnson has potential to provide a boost to the Jets' secondary.
Morris Claiborne and Buster Skrine are both free agents and the Jets needs someone opposite Trumaine Johnson - last year's big free-agent signing - who did not live up to expectations in his first season in New York.
Johnson's best season came as a rookie when he had 52 tackles, an interception and nine pass deflections, but he has not been able to duplicate that production nor stay healthy enough to play a full season since.
Johnson has also met with the Bills and Browns while the Panthers are also reportedly interested in him.
