Free Agency

Jets sign Josh Doctson, former 1st round pick

Admin - February 22, 2020

The New York Jets added some depth to their receiving corps, as they signed WR Josh Doctson, a former 1st round pick of the Washington Redskins. Doctson, 27, was drafted #22 overall in 2016. He started in 26 games for the Redskins before being released following the 2018 season. Last year he signed a 1-year deal with the Vikings but spent most of the season on injured reserve and played in just one game. Minnesota waived him on November 26, 2019.

Doctson caught career high 44 passes for 532 yards, 2 TDs in 2018. He started in 12 games and was the Redskins' second best wide receiver.

The Gang Green have only one proven receiver on their roster, WR Jamison Crowder. WR Robby Anderson and WR Demaryius Thomas are due to become free agents, while WR Quincy Enunwa's status is still unknown due to a neck injury that made him miss most of last season.

Doctson had a pretty impressive career at TCU (3,177 receiving yards, 34 TDs), but his rookie year in the NFL was cut short due to a preseason Achilles injury that limited him to only two games.
