Jets Add WR/KR Chandler Worthy to Roster

He Spent 2014 with Texans After Using His 4.38 Speed on Receptions, Rushes & KO Returns at Troy


The Jets have signed wide receiver Chandler Worthy to a reserve/future contract.

Worthy (5'9", 173), the 15th player signed by the Jets to a reserve/future deal in the last week, entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent out of Troy University with Houston following the 2015 draft. He caught the Texans' eye in part due to his 4.38-second time in the 40 at Troy's pro day before that draft.

He was a multipurpose offensive performer and kickoff returner in four Trojans seasons, posting 137 receptions for 1,767 yards (12.9 yards/catch) and 11 touchdowns and adding 176 yards on 34 carries (5.2 yards/carry) and one TD.

As a Troy senior in 2014, Worthy had his best season as a kickoff returner, averaging 26.1 yards on 27 returns and returning two kicks for touchdowns. He finished the season with 1,615 all-purpose yards in 12 games.

Worthy spent last season on either the Texans' active roster or their practice squad. He played in three of the Texans' first five games, compiling three receptions for 14 yards, one kickoff return for 27 yards, and three punt returns for 9 yards.
