Former South Carolina wide receiver Bruce Ellington was picked up by the New York Jets on Friday, a day after being released by the San Francisco 49ers.
The transaction was first reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Ellington missed the 2016 season with a hamstring tear.
A fourth-round draft pick from the Gamecocks in 2014, Ellington dealt with smaller injuries -- hamstring strains and ankle sprains -- in his first two seasons.
Never miss a local story.
Ellington led the Gamecocks his final season at USC with 49 receptions for 775 yards and eight touchdowns.
