Decorated return specialist Jakeem Grant will try out for the New York Jets at this week's minicamp, NFL Network reported Monday.

Grant, 31, last played in the NFL in 2021 when he made the Pro Bowl and earned his second consecutive All-Pro second-team selection.

Grant missed the 2022 season after tearing his left Achilles tendon at training camp with Cleveland. He missed the 2023 season after sustaining a ruptured patellar tendon in the Browns' final preseason game.

A sixth-round pick by Miami in 2016, Grant has 100 receptions for 1,140 yards and seven touchdowns in 81 games with the Dolphins (2016-21) and Chicago Bears (2021).

He has returned 119 punts for 1,228 yards (10.3 average) and four touchdowns, and has returned 110 kickoffs for 2,699 yards (24.5 average) and two scores.
