The New York Jets have invited tight end Kellen Winslow to a tryout at minicamp this week, according to multiple reports.

The 29-year-old, who has 438 receptions and 4,848 receiving yards in his eight-year career, played just one game for the New England Patriots last season.

Winslow posted three straight seasons with at least 66 receptions and 730 yards with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 2009-11. He played his first four years in Cleveland after being selected with the No. 6 overall pick in the 2004 draft out of the University of Miami.

NFL Network's Albert Breer and ESPN's Adam Schefter first reported the news after Winslow tweeted "J-E-T-S" on Saturday afternoon.

The Jets' starting tight end from the last four years, Dustin Keller, signed with the Miami Dolphins this offseason.

Third-year pro Jeff Cumberland and second-year pro Konrad Reuland are the only tight ends with significant experience on the team's current roster.
