O'Dowd was undrafted in 2011 and signed with the Cardinals before being released. He was one of the highest ranked centers in the 2011 NFL Draft.
The Jets are interested in former Oakland Raiders wide receiver Chaz Schilens. However, Arizona is also interested and have scheduled a visit with the wide out (via NFL.com). Schilens has had injury issues in his four years in Oakland but played 15 games (5 starts) last season and had 23 receptions for 271 yards and 2 touchdowns. Schilens has 72 receptions and 7 touchdowns for his career.
