I would rather take a flyer on a guy like Doctson than give up a pick and pay $10MM for Alshon Jeffery.

The precursor to not keeping Anderson and drafting wrs in the 2nd and 3rd rounds.

Former 1st round pick of the Skins out of TCU.  Worth taking a flyer on him.

Fair point.  But with Doctson, we are not giving up anything.  If he sucks in camp, we cut him with minimal cap hit (assuming contract is close to vet minimum).  Jeffery is coming off surgery in December, best years are behind him and he is guaranteed $9.9 mil.  If I am going to roll the dice on someone, give the cheap guy I can cut with no impact if necessary.

Bottom line is we need to do a lot more than Doctson &/or Jeffrey this offseason.

 

We can agree on that, my friend.

That’s exactly what I thought. We will see what happens in the next few weeks. It’s going to be a fun offseason and I hope we get a bunch of value free agents after the first few days. No splashes, even with the OL needs. Get value and volume of solid players. 

I think all this signing says is that sometimes you have to hope you get lucky with a reclamation project.

He played with Crowder so I'm sure he had some input.   Worth the risk very low down side.   Robbie is gone for sure that's the reality.   Plenty of WR's in the draft and still have Vincyth Smith with some upside and a special teamer.   The next decision will be what to do with Quincy.   

Sorry but I don't think crowder had any input.

But v Smith is going to make the squad and this guy probably won't.

Possession receiver who can still kick it in the afterburners. Younger, better version of D.Thomas. That's really who we are replacing, Thomas. And its an upgrade if he can stay healthy.

Still need to draft a #1 type WR early. I don't expect the Jets to get a 'replacement' for Robby this year. They will get a couple of nice prospects in the draft and give on one or two FAs/UDFAs/depth players (Vyncent Smith) a shot to contribute.

that's a big "if".  Huge.

This is a great move. The guy has potential. As a number one pick he was dominant in college.

He went in IR his rookie season, had two 500 yd seasons and an injured 2019. He costs no additional capital and if he blows balls or gets banged up we cut him.

But the risk/reward is unbelievable.

 

This is a good first “reall” FA move for our bald GM in 2020.

6’2”, 205.  

2016 1st round pick by the Skins out of TCU.

81 receptions for 1,100 yards in 3 seasons

Somewhere JoeWilly12 just wet himself

 

Surely he has a bed pan by his PC reading all these new posts.

Sam desperately needs an accomplished young veteran WR: Amari Cooper

Hopefully Doctson sees this as his last chance to make it in the NFL and devotes himself to working as hard as he can - starting tomorrow. Lift, run, eat right and no partying. Coming into camp in his best shape possible.

Josh just read your post and decided to retire.

Possession receiver?? His catch percentage is awful.

Plus, let's be honest, Aside from 10 minutes with Alex Smith, dude has played with garbage at QB. 

And meanwhile, all his former QB's are complaining that they played with garbage at WR.

He was healthy well before he returned from IR. I don’t know exactly what happened out there, but he practiced on his hammy a little bit in early Sept on a Tuesday and they IR’d him the next day, which is what teams do when they’re stashing a player but don’t want to use up a roster spot on him right away. In early November he claimed himself that he was 100% (and it’s quite possible he was 100% weeks before that, but was ineligible to return until 8 weeks after the IR designation date). A few weeks later they cut him.

His problem (in terms of sticking on the roster for us) may be that he doesn’t present any dual-value on special teams. It’s hard to imagine he doesn’t have the tools to play on specials, so it could suggest he’s dumb AF or not a team player. 

Cousins surely had some influence on the Vikings picking him up in September after no one put in a waiver claim, but it’s not a good sign that they cut him while his cost was so low and also while Thielen was still sidelined with his own 2nd-half hammy injury. They must really think Doctson sucks something awful, or that he’s a total tool. Hopefully we get lucky, like maybe he had the talent all along but just needed to put in more work than he did before (like he expected it to just happen as a 1st rounder believing his own hype or something).

Thomas was traded from the WR needy Patriots for God sakes. Let's make the Jets WR core great again! We just upgraded our #4 wideout. 

Now let's hope Ceedee Lamb & Michael Pittman follow! It was fun being a Jet fan in the Walker, Toon, Shuler, McNeil years. Let's start showing up on the NFL Redzone channel regularly! 

Lets put together an offense that fans outside of NY & the AFC East are curious about in a Primetime game. We're Jet fans, can you imagine the utter disgust when other NFL fans see NY Jets vs New England Patriots on the SNF or MNF schedule? Surround Sam with explosive offensive players so at least our team will be INTERESTING. 

If I wasn't a Jet fan, and witnessed last years PRIMETIME debacle vs the Patriots, I'd have a hard time being convinced to stay up late to watch any game the Jets are involved in. Sad but true.

Achilles strain in 2016 and Hamstring in 2019.  Also had a fractured wrist in college.

OK so nothing career altering, cool as far as that goes, thanks.  Still a long shot but low risk so what the hell.

45 and 56 the next two seasons. At least he improved each year but they still need to draft a second day WR. 

Absolutely.  Doctson is a low risk, long shot signing.  He will be given a chance to make the team.  Nothing more.  Maybe he figures it our and can be part of the WR rotation.  Or maybe he cuts cut during camp.

He does not change our need to draft &/or sign WRs.
