Jets Sign WR Josh Doctson

Josh Doctson has found his next gig. The Jets announced today that they’ve signed the former first-rounder.

The 22nd-overall pick in the 2016 Draft spent the first three seasons of his career with the Redskins. Even in his best season, Doctson put up underwhelming numbers, hauling in 44 receptions for 532 yards and two touchdowns in 2018.

The Redskins predictably declined his fifth-year option last offseason, and the organization ended up moving on from the receiver at the end of the 2019 preseason. He quickly signed with the Vikings, but he landed on injured reserve in late September. He returned and appeared in a single game for Minnesota before getting released in late November. Doctson hasn’t had a reported workout since that time.

The Jets receivers depth chart could look a whole lot different next season. It sounds like Robby Anderson will be testing free agency, leaving the team with Jamison Crowder as their only reliable option.

      Well they certainly seem pretty desperate if they are signing Doctson. Maybe they will invite Dez Bryant and Brandon Marshall to workout next.
