The New York Jets worked out veteran kicker Roberto Aguayo on Wednesday along with four other players according to a source.
After consecutive days of big-time news, there was no media availability at Florham Park, New Jersey on Wednesday. That didn’t stop one man from picking up the list of recent NFL vets who arrived for a New York Jets workout.
According to a source close with Brian Costello of the New York Post, the Jets worked out five players on Wednesday. One of the five was yet another kicker, Roberto Aguayo.
Among the guys who the Jets worked out today were: K Roberto Aguayo, TE Jerrell Adams (ex-Giant), edge rushers Nate Orchard, Charles Tapper, Ryan Delaire, per source. #nyj

Aguayo, 24, is most known for his failures during the 2017 training camp season. Harmfully depicted on HBO’s Hard Knocks, Aguayo was cut by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in favor of a journeyman veteran (hello, Nick Folk).
This all went down despite his valuable stock as a second-round selection via the 2016 NFL Draft.
Since finishing 10-of-15 his rookie campaign, the young Florida State product hasn’t kicked in the NFL. The kid has plenty of talent. This much is certain. It’ll all come down to Mike Maccagnan and the Jets taking a chance.
As of right now, Jason Meyers is the Jets kicker as Dan Bailey, who worked out in Jersey on Monday, was not signed.
The other four players who worked out on Wednesday were former Giants TE Jerrell Adams and edge rushers Nate Orchard, Charles Tapper and Ryan Delaire.
Along with kicker and offensive line, no Jets position is in a state of despair as much as the edge position. Jordan Jenkins and Josh Martin start within Todd Bowles’s 3-4 system yet ignite very little fear by way of opposing offensive tackles.
The search for help at weak New York Jets positions continues.
