The Jets are doing some spring cleaning. On Friday, the Jets released six players from their offseason roster, including wide receiver Josh Doctson. Meanwhile, they also welcomed 12 new undrafted free agents. Here’s the full rundown:
- WR Josh Doctson
- K Chase McLaughlin
- CB Kyron Brown
- TE Connor Davis
- OL Leo Koloamatangi
- WR Jaleel Scott
- Isaiah Dunn, DB, Oregon State
- Michael Dwumfour, DL, Rutgers
- Camilo Eifler, LB, Illinois
- Parker Ferguson, OL, Air Force
- Grant Hermanns, OL, Purdue
- Tristen Hoge, OL, BYU
- Kenny Yeboah, TE, Mississippi
- Chris Naggar, K, SMU
- Jordyn Peters, S, Auburn
- Hamilcar Rashed Jr., DE, Oregon State
- Teton Saltes, OL, New Mexico
- Brendon White, LB, Rutgers
Doctson, a former first-round pick of the WFT, joined the Jets in February as a street free agent. In August, he exercised his right to opt out, tolling his one-year pact to 2021. While Doctson did not deliver on Washington’s investment, he did post multiple 500-plus-yard seasons from 2017-18 and profiled as a somewhat interesting candidate to factor into the Jets’ wideout mix last season. Now, he’ll seek employment elsewhere.

Never put his act together in Washington, and the effort just didn’t seem to be there
I agree and this year coulda been a nice platform year as the jets receiving corps was pretty weak. Not sure the reasons for his opt out but this very well could be the end of his career.
Last year would’ve been a better chance for him to show what he could do. This year there is more competition with Corey Davis and Elijah Moore joining and Denzel Mims, Jamison Crowder and others returning.
Yeah I meant last year
Come to the Patriots. We can use another WR and rebuild your value. Win-win. Gotta work hard though.
Your last sentence is a deal breaker.
What receiver retread as New England ever taken on and rebuilt? Literally nobody besides a generational talent who is the glaring exception to the rule.
I gather “generational talent” is the disclaimer for Randy Moss, but Brady was a factor in getting the most out of any receiver they had who probably wouldn’t have been successful at the time elsewhere.
Brady no longer on your team remember?
Looks like they’re going for a one-on-one competition between Ficken and Naggar. Something doesn’t sound right about that…
Surprised they haven’t cut Crowder yet
If they have cap space and are comfortable with having both Crowder and Moore, they may keep him. They could also be considering making him a “post-June 1” cut for maximum cap benefit.
Don’t you mean JOSH NISSAN ????
