Jets Sign Former Redskins 1st Round WR Josh Doctson

Josh Doctson

The NY Jets have announced that they signed veteran free agent WR Josh Doctson.

Doctson (6’2″, 205) was a first-round selection by Washington, No. 22 overall, following the 2016 draft after putting up big numbers his last two seasons at TCU. In three seasons with the Redskins, he played in 33 games (26 starts) and recorded 81 receptions for 1,100 yards (13.6 yards/catch) and 8 touchdowns.

He was a final cut by the ‘Skins last September and signed as a free agent with Minnesota after clearing waivers two days later. He was with the Vikings through late November but played in only one game with no catches.

This will be a fresh start for Doctson who never came close to living up to the pressure of being a 1st round draft pick in Washington. He had no 100-yard games with the Redskins and only had 1,110 yards in three seasons. He spent the year last year with the Vikings but was placed on injured reserve in September. He was activated late in the year but only saw action in one game (no catches) before being waived.
