Receiver Brandon Zylstra worked out for the New York Jets on Tuesday.
He led the CFL with 1,687 receiving yards on 100 receptions adding five touchdowns in 2017 and was named a 2017 all-star. The 24-year-old broke onto the scene with 508 yards in six games last year.
Zylstra played collegiately at Concordia College in Minnesota totalling 1,932 receiving yards and 18 touchdowns in 29 games adding 25 rushes for 394 yards and five touchdowns along with 39 kick returns for 885 yards with the Cobbers.
When he entered the NFL draft in 2016, Zylstra attended the North Dakota State pro day recording a 4.64 4o-yard dash, 34-inch vertical, 10-foot broad jump and pressed 225 pounds 16 times on the bench. He went undrafted in the NFL and signed with the Eskimos on May 30, 2016.
There are many NFL teams who want to work Zylstra out, so expect more to come.
