Jets GM says he might add rookie to QB mix

While saying it's "highly unlikely" they will add another veteran quarterback, Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan didn't rule out the possibility of adding a rookie to his stable of arms.

Jets GM Mike Maccagnan declined to say if they will exercise the fifth-year option for former first-round S Calvin Pryor. His play regressed last season after a promising 2015, and the team likely won't pick up the option, which would be about $7 million in 2018 salary (guaranteed for injury only).

Jets GM Mike Maccagnan said it's "highly unlikely" they will add another veteran QB, but he didn't rule out drafting one. He declined to say if McCown will go into camp as the starter -- he deferred to Todd Bowles -- but, "I still think he has some good football left in him." Reading between the lines, it sounds like Christian Hackenberg will get a chance to compete for the job.

The Jets are showing interest in the draft's top quarterback prospects -- hardly a surprise. They've already held a private workout with Notre Dame's DeShone Kizer, a source confirmed, and they're planning a workout with North Carolina's Mitchell Trubisky. No word yet on Clemson's DeShaun Watson and Texas Tech's Patrick Mahomes.

Jets coach Todd Bowles, continuing his scouting tour of the Big Ten Conference, is attending the Michigan pro day on Friday. Talent evaluators say the Wolverines could have as many as 12 players drafted, including DE Taco Charlton and S Jabrill Peppers -- potential first rounders. Yesterday, Bowles scouted Ohio State, another school loaded with defensive talent. Detect a trend?

Revis among top remaining free agents

Darrelle Revis is no longer in legal trouble, but the 31-year-old corner must convince teams he can still play. We think he's one of the top-10 players still on the market.

RB Donnel Pumphrey catches a pass as New York Jets running backs coach Stump Mitchell looks on at San Diego State's pro day Thursday. Pumphrey stood on his combine numbers. He did a nice job catching punts and going through bag drills. The FBS all-time leading rusher with 6,405 yards, Pumphrey understands he'll have to make it as pass-catching back and returner at the next level.

The Jets announced the signing of former 49ers WR Quinton Patton. He will be reunited with his former 49ers position coach, John Morton, now the Jets' offensive coordinator. Patton set career highs last season in catches (37) and yards (408). The deal had been in the works since Patton visited last Saturday.

Should the Jets invest in a TE with sixth pick? (1:21)

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay believes it would be a mistake for the Jets to draft QB Mitchell Trubisky with the sixth pick. "Do you think the Jets, in that market, with their quarterback need, with their lack of supporting cast right now, is a good situation for Trubisky?" McShay said this morning on Mike & Mike. "To me, he needs to go to a team like the Los Angeles Chargers or Arizona Cardinals, where they have a veteran in place now. That can allow him to sit. Put him in the witness protection program. Give him a year or two to learn the game and study and be ready to take over down the line."
