If the Jets were looking to not be dead last in the NFL for tight end receptions for the third consecutive year, 2017 hasn’t changed that trend so far. It’s true this unit will get Austin Seferian-Jenkins back next week after serving his two game suspension. However, the tight ends were almost invisible once again for the Jets offense.
Will Tye blamed his production last week on not being familiar with the team’s playbook. This week it wasn’t any prettier with only one catch for four yards and an easy drop on a third down conversion.
While there will be reinforcements on the way next week, the tight end position continues to be almost non-existent for the New York Jets. It could start to turn around in the next few weeks, but so far it’s been the same old story over the first two weeks of 2017.
