Former Clemson wide receiver Jacoby Ford has signed a one year contract with the New York Jets for $740,000 including a $65,000 signing bonus according to multiple reports.

He has 57 career NFL receptions with 848 yards receiving and three touchdowns. In 2013, he had 13 catches for 99 yards in 14 games last season. He spent most of the season recovering from Lisfranc surgery.
