The Jets’ search for a quarterback continued Thursday as team officials held a private workout for UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen in Los Angeles, according to a source.

The source said general manager Mike Maccagnan, coach Todd Bowles and offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates were the known Jets officials at the workout, which took place in the rain.

The Jets’ contingent left the Los Angeles area and headed to Laramie, Wyoming, to attend the Pro Day of Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen, which is scheduled for Friday. The Jets also scheduled a private workout in Norman, Oklahoma, with Sooners quarterback Baker Mayfield for Saturday, a source said.

The Jets and Giants were among 13 NFL teams to watch former Heisman Trophy winner and 2014 first-round pick Johnny Manziel throw at the University of San Diego on Thursday, ESPN reported.

The Jets also hosted wide receiver Allen Hurns at their Florham Park, New Jersey, facility Thursday, a source said. Hurns was supposed to visit Wednesday, but the snowstorm delayed his trip. Hurns, who had 189 receptions in 52 games for Jacksonville the last four seasons, instead visited the Cowboys on Wednesday but left without reaching a deal.

A source confirmed the Jets were meeting Thursday with cornerback E.J. Gaines. He played 11 games with the Bills last season, making one interception. If the Jets sign Gaines, it could mean the end of starter Buster Skrine’s three-year tenure with the team.
