Schefter: Jeremy Bates is Jets’ Most Underrated Off-Season Acquisition

By Glenn Naughton


While Jets fans continue to debate the credentials, or lack thereof, of the three quarterbacks currently on their roster in Josh McCown, Christian Hackenberg and Bryce Petty, NFL Insider Adam Schefter offered an interesting take on Gang Green’s quarterback situation during an appearance on The Rich Eisen Show.

In discussing the Jets’ dire situation under center, Schefter chimed in saying new quarterback coach Jeremy Bates “is a quarterback guru and I think that he can do a lot of good for Christian Hackenberg” and continued, saying Bates is “the underrated, least talked about jets off-season acquisition so far”

Bates last worked as a QB coach back in 2012 with the Bears, and has also held the same post with the Jets and Denver Broncos in 2005 and 2008 respectively.
