During the 2016 season, Petty threw for 809 yards, 3 touchdowns and 7 interceptions to go along with a 56% completion percentage on 133 attempts in six appearances (4 starts). Petty would regress in the 2017 season, as the former 4th round pick appeared in 4 games, throwing just 1 touchdown to 3 interceptions, with a 49% completion percentage.
Following the release of Petty, many are left wondering if the Jets will keep Christian Hackenberg for the 2018-2019 season, or if his number will be up soon as well.
