Dri Archer Signs Reserve/Future Contract With Jets
By Glenn Naughton
The New York Jets have announced the signing of running back, wide receiver, return man Dri Archer to a reserve/future contract.
Archer, a former 3rd round draft choice of the Pittsburgh Steelers was let go during the 2015 season following an underwhelming 20 pro games.
Archer opened eyes at the NFL combine when he posted a 4.26 40-time, but the speed has yet to translate into on-field results in his short time in the league.
The Kent State product has just 10 carries for 40 yards (4.0 YPC) and 7 receptions for 23 yards, all as a rookie while returning 23 kicks for 515 yards, an average of 22.4 yards per return and has yet to score a touchdown as a pro.
