Doctson signed a 1-year deal with the Jets and was expected to compete for a roster spot to be Sam Darnold’s fourth or fifth receiver. Having racked up a pair of 500 yard seasons, Doctson is one of the more experienced receivers on a Jets depth chart that has plenty of speed but lacks past production as we outlined here earlier this week.
With Doctson out of the picture, the Jets could consider picking up the phone to touch base with Demaryius Thomas who would be a nice depth option at this point.
