Former Pitt receiver Devin Street is on the move. Again.
Street was picked up by the New England Patriots in early May but lasted less than a month before he was released. The good news for him is that he didn't last long before signing with the New York Jets this week. Street was added by the team after they placed receiver Quinton Patton on injured reserve.
How long his stay is in New York, however, isn't clear. As SB Nation's Jets site Gang Green Nation points out, Patton himself was going to have difficulty in sticking with the roster as the team has quite a few young receivers with potential. At 26, Street isn't exactly old. But he will be entering his fourth NFL season and with four teams having taken a chance on him, he's already sort of a known commodity.
The Jets did part ways with Brandon Marshall, who led the team in both catches and targets. But their other top two receivers, Quincy Enunwa and Robby Anderson, have both had more NFL success than Street and are younger. Compounding the problem for Street is that the team drafted receivers in the 3rd and 4th rounds of the NFL Draft earlier this year. Those guys will obviously get more priority than a guy like Street.
For now, this looks like a move to simply bolster the offseason/camp roster. But perhaps if Street impresses, he'll get a shot to hang around.
