Reports out of New York say that former Ravens tight end Todd Heap will visit with the Jets today and that Rex Ryan is putting on a full-court press to sign the veteran.
Heap, who has spent his entire career with the Ravens, was let go last week so the team could get under the salary cap.
This morning, ESPN's Adam Schefter tweeted that former Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress has signed a one-year deal with the Jets. Here is his tweet:
Filed to ESPN: Plaxico Burress will sign with the N.Y. Jets. Confirmed. 1-year deal for $3,017,000, fully guaranteed. Plax is a Jet.
The Jets could go with a two tight-end set of Dustin Keller and Heap with Santonio Holmes and Burress on the outside. Could cause all kinds of problems for a defense.
