The Jets announced they have signed veteran tight end Mikhael Ricks and released rookie tight end Michael Carter. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Ricks, a 6-5, 260-pound native of Anahuac, TX, has played with the San Diego Chargers, the Kansas City Chiefs and the Detroit Lions during his six-year career. He has played in 84 regular season games, making 40 starts, recording 155 receptions for 1,939 yards and eight touchdowns in his career. In 2002, Ricks recorded 27 receptions for 339 yards and three touchdowns leading to his selection as the NFC’s first alternate at tight end. Originally drafted as a wide receiver, out of Stephen F. Austin University, he made the switch to tight end during Kansas City’s mini-camp in 2001. Ricks’ career long reception is 50 yards, which he accomplished in the 1999 season against Cincinnati.

Carter originally signed with the Jets as a rookie free agent on April 30, 2004. The 6-2, 251-pound tight end is a Long Beach, CA native and finished his collegiate career with 121 carries for 697 yards (5.8 yards per carry) and eight rushing touchdowns and nine catches for 146 yards (16.2 yards per catch) and one receiving touchdown. He began his career at Fresno State before transferring to Cerritos Community College and then to Chapman University.
