Jets pass on Terron Beckham, cousin of Giants Odell

FLORHAM PARK, NJ - After trying out at the Jets rookie minicamp this past weekend, the Jets decided not to sign RB Terron Beckham.

Beckham, cousin of Giants' Odell Beckham Jr. made headlines more for his relation to the aforementioned  Pro Bowl wide receiver than his skills, was a long shot to begin with, not having played any college football. 

Beckham gained some interest when he held an impressive pro-day in April where he ran a 4.47 40 yard dash and bench pressed 225 LBS 36 times. 

In the end, his lack of experience doomed him and he was not very impressive this weekend. At least not enough to be offered a contract. He now remains a free agent and can be signed by any team.
