On Wednesday, two reports surfaced that the New York Jets would be playing host to two of the most well-known college football players over the last three seasons.
Former Alabama Crimson Tide safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and former Washington Huskies’ Austin Seferian-Jenkins were scheduled to visit the Jets on Thursday.
How do the Jets top that?
By bringing the hero of the BCS Championship game along with them of course.
According to Manish Mehta of The New York Daily News, former Florida State Seminoles’ wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin is visiting the Jets as well.

Benjamin obviously has fantastic size (6’5, 240-pounds), but was plagued by consistency issues while with the Seminoles.
Still, he seemed to put it together in his redshirt sophomore season with Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Jameis Winston at the helm. Benjamin made 54 receptions for 1,011 yards and 15 touchdowns in 2013.
