The New York Jets added depth at wide receiver.

Former fourth-round pick Quinton Patton agreed to terms, the Jets announced Thursday. Patton spent his first four years with the 49ers, with his 37 catches for 408 yards last year being career highs.

Jets offensive coordinator John Morton was Patton's first wide receivers coach in San Francisco from 2013 to 2014.

Here are some other free-agent moves we've been tracking Thursday:

  1. The Los Angeles Rams agreed to terms with quarterback Aaron Murray and defensive tackleTyrunn Walker. Murray was most recently a member of the Philadelphia Eagles' practice squad. Walker started eight games for the Detroit Lions last season and has recorded 63 combined tackles during his five-year career.
