The Jets and Patton (foot) agreed to terms on a contract Thursday, Eric Allen of the team's official site reports.

A fourth-round pick of the 49ers in 2013, Patton managed just six receptions across 10 games in his first two seasons before landing a regular role within the offense. Despite the uptick in snaps beginning in 2015, uninspiring offenses under the direction of head coaches Jim Tomsula and Chip Kelly didn't translate to significant output, as evidenced by a combined 67 catches (on 120 targets) for 802 yards and one touchdown during that stretch. With the move to New York, Patton will now be jostling with a number of options -- wideouts Eric Decker (shoulder), Quincy Enunwa, and Robby Anderson, plus pass-catching backs Matt Forte (knee) and Bilal Powell -- in an offense led by graybeard quarterback Josh McCown.
