Memphis quarterback Paxton Lynch is set to visit with the Jets Friday at their facility, a source confirmed to Newsday.

The big quarterback with the big arm met with the New Orleans Saints on Thursday and is prepared to fly to New Jersey for his meeting with the Jets, the source added.

The 6-7, 244-pound Lynch is viewed as one of the top three QBs in this year’s draft class and has been turning NFL scouts’ heads with his arm strength.

He threw for 3,776 yards, 28 touchdowns and only four interceptions last season.
