The New York Jets worked out quarterback Chris Streveler on Tuesday.

Streveler has been a free agent since the 2021 NFL season ended. He finished the campaign on the Baltimore Ravens practice roster.

The six-foot-one, 216-pound Streveler was released by the Arizona Cardinals last November after completing 17-of-25 pass attempts for 141 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in two seasons with the team while also rushing seven times for 21 yards. He has made over $1.1 million through two seasons in the NFL.

The 27-year-old completed 65 percent of his passes for 2,698 yards in two seasons with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers along with 19 touchdowns and 19 interceptions. He rushed for 1,167 yards and 22 touchdowns averaging 5.7 yards per carry.

Streveler was especially effective for Winnipeg during their 2019 Grey Cup run, rushing for 82 yards and a touchdown in the West Semi-Final and throwing a touchdown pass to Canadian star Andrew Harris in the CFL championship win.

Ottawa Redblacks’ head coach Paul LaPolice wants Streveler to be his starting quarterback in 2022. The pair were together in Winnipeg for two seasons (2018-2019) during which the dual-threat QB helped lead the Blue Bombers to a Grey Cup title.

However, it’s clear NFL teams are still interested in Streveler.
