Josh Doctson

The NY Jets have announced that they signed veteran free agent WR Josh Doctson.

Doctson (6’2″, 205) was a first-round selection by Washington, No. 22 overall, following the 2016 draft after putting up big numbers his last two seasons at TCU. In three seasons with the Redskins, he played in 33 games (26 starts) and recorded 81 receptions for 1,100 yards (13.6 yards/catch) and 8 touchdowns.

He was a final cut by the ‘Skins last September and signed as a free agent with Minnesota after clearing waivers two days later. He was with the Vikings through late November but played in only one game with no catches.

This will be a fresh start for Doctson who never came close to living up to the pressure of being a 1st round draft pick in Washington. He had no 100-yard games with the Redskins and only had 1,110 yards in three seasons. He spent the year last year with the Vikings but was placed on injured reserve in September. He was activated late in the year but only saw action in one game (no catches) before being waived.

The signing of Josh Doctson won’t turn many heads any time soon among the Jets faithful, but the move is a good one by GM Joe Douglas as his team prepares to enter the offseason with just one other veteran receiver on the roster in Jamison Crowder.  With Robby Anderson likely to bolt as a free agent along with Demaryius Thomas, the Jets needed some veteran depth.

Doctson won’t even be a lock to make the roster, and counting on him to be any more than a fourth receiver might be a bit much, but as a complementary piece, his addition isn’t a bad move.

The former first-round pick out of TCU isn’t a burner, but he does a nice job pulling down contested passes and put up 1,032 yards over the course of the 2017/2018 seasons with the Washington Redskins.  His best year came in 2018 when he hauled in 44 balls for 532 yards and a pair of touchdowns.  His career high in touchdowns came the previous season when he had six scores.

Doctson signed on with the Minnesota Vikings after being let go by the ‘Skins but appeared in just one game before spending time on IR prior to being released in November.

Given the amount of depth at the wide receiver position in the upcoming NFL draft, Doctson could find himself in a dog fight to stick with the Jets, but at just 28-years-old, the Jets may view Doctson as a reclamation project who they can work with, while also giving them a player who knows the ins and outs of being an NFL receiver.
