Josh Doctson signs with Jets
Former first round pick Josh Doctson has a new team to try to salvage his career with.
The former Washington Redskin has signed with the New York Jets, the team announced Saturday.
This will be the third team of Doctson’s career since he was a first round pick in 2016. Unfortunately, he has largely been a bust. He caught six touchdown passes in 2017 and 44 receptions in 2018, but those are his career highs. The fact that Washington was so eager to part with him despite being thin at the position does not speak well of how they viewed him.
Doctson is little more than a flier for the Jets, and he’s no guarantee to stick there. They’re kind of betting on rediscovering his lost talent, and there will be no harm to them if they fail to do so.
