Titans signed WRs Jacoby Ford and Clyde Gates to reserve/future contracts.
Both can also return kicks. Ford was a highlight-reel speedster and deep threat early in his career with the Raiders before foot injuries. He spent last summer with the Jets, but couldn't even make it to final cuts. Gates is a similar player except he's less dynamic than Ford. Jan 14 - 6:51 PM

Date:

Jets released or waived WR/KR Jacoby Ford, CB Ras-I Dowling, WR Michael Campbell, TE Colin Anderson, FB Chad Young, and DE Anthony Grady.

Ford was an intriguing signing by the Jets in March, but it didn't work out. He was expected to compete for a situational deep threat role at receiver and fill the kick returner job. Not making one of the worst receiving corps in the league and not lasting until final cuts isn't a good sign for Ford's future in the league.

ESPN New York considers Jacoby Ford the favorite for the Jets' kick return job.

Ford blazed a 4.22 at the 2010 Combine and scored three touchdowns on returns as a rookie for the Raiders. But it's fair to wonder if his speed is still the same after battling a Lisfranc fracture and other nagging lower-body injuries. If healthy, Ford should have no problem beating out Clyde Gates and rookie Shaq Evans for the gig. He's also in the mix for sub-package receiver work.

Jacoby Ford sat out Wednesday's OTA with a foot injury.

It's notable because Ford missed the entire 2012 season with a Lisfranc fracture in his foot, and has been one of the most injury-prone players in the league. He's going to be in the mix for a prominent role in the Jets' wide-open receiving corps behind Eric Decker. Ford can stretch the field, but he needs to stay on it.

Jets agreed to terms with WR/KR Jacoby Ford, formerly of the Raiders.

Former Raiders owner Al Davis made Ford the No. 108 overall pick of the 2010 draft after he ran a 4.28 40-yard dash, but Ford has proven to be amongst the most injury-prone players in the league. A would-be slot receiver, the 5-foot-9, 190-pound wideout has just 57 career catches, and missed 28 games over the past three seasons. Ford has as many lifetime lost fumbles (three) as receiving scores, and was barely utilized on returns in 2013. Still only 27 (in July), Ford is worth a flier, but is far from a guarantee to crack the 53-man roster.

Free agent Jacoby Ford visited the Jets on Monday.

Ford was linked to the Jets two weeks ago, but it's his first-known visit. Ford has play-making ability on offense and special teams, but is among the league's most-brittle players. Any deal will include little guaranteed money.

ESPN.com's David Newton believes the Panthers could show interest in free agent WR/KR Jacoby Ford.

Ford could fit in Carolina as a replacement for Ted Ginn on kick returns and as a situational deep threat. He's been linked to the Jets this offseason, but has yet to draw any other interest. Ford, 26, should only require a minimum-salary deal.

The Jets are reportedly showing interest in free agent WR/KR Jacoby Ford.

There's a connection to Ford in that he played for Jets receivers coach Sanjay Lal in Oakland. Ford is an interesting prospect because he has track star speed and can also be a major asset in the return game. He'd be a nice, cheap flier for a Jets team in desperate need of playmakers.

The San Francisco Chronicle confirms free agent WR/KR Jacoby Ford will hit the open market.

The Raiders appear to have little or no interest in re-signing Ford. Ford is somewhat interesting because he's only 26 with playmaking ability on both special teams and offense. He'll be well worthy of a minimum-salary flier.

Jacoby Ford is inactive for Week 17 against the Broncos.

Ford is a healthy scratch for the second straight game and likely won't be back with the Raiders as an unrestricted free agent this offseason. CB Tracy Porter (questionable, hip) is active despite being limited in practice this week. The rest of Oakland's inactives are WR Brice Butler, CB Mike Jenkins, RG Lamar Mady, C Andre Gurode, OT Menelik Watson, and DT Ricky Lumpkin.

Jacoby Ford caught two passes for 15 yards in Week 5 against the Chargers.

Ford secured both of his targets from Terrelle Pryor and continues to be used strictly as a situational deep threat. He has just six catches for 44 yards through five games.

Raiders WR Jacoby Ford finished catch-less and rushed once for three yards in Week 4 against the Redskins.

He wasn't even targeted in the passing game by Matt Flynn. Through four weeks, Ford is on pace to finish with 16 receptions, 116 yards, and no touchdowns.
Sun, Sep 29, 2013 08:25:00 PM

Jacoby Ford caught just one pass for 15 yards and rushed one time for another four yards in Monday night's Week 3 loss to Denver.

Ford has just four catches for 29 yards through three games as the Raiders' No. 4 receiver. He's well off the fantasy radar, obviously.

Raiders WR Jacoby Ford (knee) has resumed practicing in training camp.

Ford remains the favorite to open the year as Oakland's No. 3/slot receiver, but still must hold off rookie Brice Butler. Butler did take a step back in the second preseason game after making two big plays in the exhibition opener.

Jacoby Ford has been "hampered" by a strained knee over the past two weeks, and aggravated the injury on Wednesday.

So it goes for the injury-prone wideout, who has as much trouble staying on the field as any player in the league. CSN Bay Area reported on Monday that Ford "looks as agile as ever," but it's now unclear if he'll suit up for Friday's preseason game against the Cowboys. Ford is not worth a standard-league fantasy pick.
