ESPN’s Brian Windhorst is reporting that the New York Jets have signed former Buffalo Bills receiver Marques Colston to a one-year deal worth $1 million.
Colston has spent the past two seasons with the Bills, where he caught a career-high 53 passes for 759 yards and seven touchdowns in 2016.
The 6-foot-3, 218-pounder has also been a reliable slot receiver and return man, as well as a solid blocking and punt returner.
ESPN’s Todd Archer tweeted that the deal is for a base salary of $800,000, and $500,000 guaranteed.
It’s unclear what the Jets will be paying Colston, who turns 27 on Sunday.
With Colston’s arrival, the Jets now have one receiver on the roster with a contract in the $3.5 million range.
