Football player Laurent Duvernay-Tardif could be making a comeback to the NFL as he made an appointment with the New York Jets to show them his skills on Wednesday.
According to the NFL Network, the Quebecer could carve out a place on the organization’s training team after completing his residency in medicine. In the medium or long term, it is impossible to certify the presence of “LDT” within regular training.
Duvernay-Tardif became a free agent in March after the 2021 campaign. During that campaign, the Kansas City Chiefs traded him to the Jets, but after speaking with a few clubs interested in his services during the offseason, he began his residency on July 1. The guard told the “Journal de Québec” in June that he left the door open for a return to the field.
“I continue to train and I will see in September how I feel, but the teams that have contacted me are comfortable with the situation. I couldn’t be more transparent about that. I prioritize medicine while leaving an open door for me,” he said.
Having started his career in the NFL in 2014, Duvernay-Tardif gave up the year 2020 to lend a hand to CHSLDs during the pandemic. For their part, the Jets are doing well in the competitive East Division of the American Conference. They have won six of their nine games so far.
