FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- The New York Jets bolstered their thin receiving group by bringing back a familiar face.
Coach Rex Ryan said the Jets would look into bringing in a wide receiver, and even said veteran Laveranues Coles was a possibility. Coles was released on Aug. 29, ending his third stint with the team he began his career with. The 32-year-old Coles has said New York would be his last stop and might retire.
Woodhead, one of Ryan's personal favorites, played against Baltimore but registered only a special teams tackle. The versatile 5-foot-9 former NCAA career rushing leader from Chadron State had eight catches for 87 yards and ran for 64 yards in 10 games last season. Woodhead spent the 2008 season on injured reserve after injuring his left knee during training camp.
