NEW YORK (AP) - The New York Jets have signed tight end Kellen Winslow Jr. to a one-year deal after a solid performance during the team's three-day minicamp.

The team announced the signing Friday.

Winslow was brought in on a tryout basis and impressed coach Rex Ryan, who said Thursday that the former Pro Bowl tight end's "athleticism and his ability to catch the football, it certainly jumps out."

Winslow, who turns 30 next month, adds depth to a position thin on experience after allowing Dustin Keller to leave as a free agent. Jeff Cumberland, with 32 career catches, was the projected starter, with Konrad Reuland, a solid blocker, and former rugby player Hayden Smith the backups.

Winslow played in just one game last season with New England before asking for his release.
