Mychal Rivera: Visiting with Jets

Rivera will visit the Jets, Manish Mehta of the NY Daily News reports.

Rivera enjoyed a productive stretch with the Raiders back in 2014, but his role in the offense faded as the team added superior weapons. He only caught 18 of 25 targets for 192 yards and a touchdown in 13 games last season, serving as the No. 2 tight end in an offense that heavily relied on its impressive wideouts. While the Raiders seem fine to move forward without him, Rivera might have a real shot at a starting job with a Jets team sorely lacking in talent at his position. New York might represent his best chance to reemerge as a pass-catching threat.
