Former Clemson defensive tackle Jarvis Jenkins had a workout with the New England Patriots on Friday according to multiple reports.

Jenkins was waived by the New York Jets on Wednesday. He had only 120 snaps in nine games this season registering nine tackles and zero sacks.

He finalized a two-year deal with the New York Jets worth around $7 million with $3 million guaranteed at the beginning of the season through free agency.

The former Daniel high school product suffered a torn ACL injury and missed his rookie season back in 2011, but rebounded to start 14 games in 2012 and had 25 tackles. In 2013 (five starts), he had two sacks and followed that up in 2014 (14 starts) with 28 tackles and no sacks. In 2015, Jenkins had his most impressive year as a pro with four sacks and 32 tackles.

In his NFL career, he has six sacks across 68 career games.

He was the #41st overall pick (2nd round) out of Clemson in the 2011 NFL draft and was named first-team All-ACC his senior season for the Tigers with 51 tackles, 9 tackles for loss and 16 quarterback pressures.
