Welcome to the 2019 Jets Free Agency Profile series!
Up until the start of the 2019 free agency period in March Chuma Edoga Jersey Boys , I’ll be running through a bunch of names the Jets could potentially bring in with their hoard of cap space.

Over past two seasons, 12 touchdowns in 30 games (pace for 6.4 per 16 games)16 red zone touchdowns since 2015 Infant Chuma Edoga Jersey , 14th among wide receivers in that spanPlayed in 64 of 67 possible career gamesGood track record against AFC East, played four games against the division (one against each team) and played well in every game, averaging 6 catches for 85 yards on over 10 yards per target while scoring in each. Team went 4-0 in those games. Among all divisions, has his best numbers against the AFC East in every categoryCons:Down year in 2018. Posted just 549 yards, which was 65% of his yardage total in 2017. Second-fewest yards per target among 6’4+ receivers, better than only Kelvin Benjamin. 62nd in wide receiver DVOA. Career-lows in yards per reception (12.5) and passer rating when targeted (68.0)Had good YAC numbers in 2016 and 2017, but coming off of a 2018 season in which he posted the second-fewest yards after catch per reception (1.8) among wide receiversSnaps decreased drastically at the end of the year. Played on average 84% of offensive snaps over first ten games, decreased to 32% over final four. Had played at least 66% of snaps in every game since the start of 2017, played less than half in each of final four games, including only 19% and 24% in last two. Collected total of 33 yards over the final five weeks of the seasonIt’s not a great look if a longtime receiver-starved franchise like Carolina just lets him walk as a former second round pickIffy route-running, capable of some beauties but often slips or has miscommunications with the quarterbackShaky hands Chuma Edoga Jersey Draft , while capable of those acrobatic catches, he doesn’t grab as many of the tough catches as you’d like. When you think of 6’4, 225 pound wide receivers, you think jump balls and tough grabs. Whichever team signs Funchess will be signing him to consistently make plays like this one:For every one of those catches that Funchess made, there were too many instances where he lost contested catch situations that he should be winning.Spotrac per year estimate is $8.9M. Same question that just about every other free agent wide receiver will face applies to Funchess. Is that price worth it for a guy who is coming off of a poor season of production, and whose career year was just “solid”? NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Jets‘ defense is getting its leader back.Coach Todd Bowles announced Monday that defensive coordinator Kacy Rodgers is returning to work this week after missing the past two games while dealing with an unspecified illness .“He’s been cleared and he should be ready to go,” Bowles said during a conference call. “We’ll ease him in slowly depending on how he feels, but he’s doing a lot better.”Bowles added that Rodgers will coach Sunday in the Jets’ game against Minnesota, but said it’s uncertain to know so early in the week if Rodgers will call the defensive plays. Bowles has run the defense the past two weeks, victories over Denver and Indianapolis.The 49-year-old Rodgers was at MetLife Stadium on Sunday for the win over the Colts and broke down the team huddle in the locker room after the game.“He’s a great spirit,” nose tackle Steve McLendon said. “He’s a great coach. For me Chuma Edoga NFL Jersey , it’s always awesome to see a guy come back, especially with all the things that he’s been through in the past few weeks. He gets to come back to the game that he loves. As long as he has health, that’s all that matters.”Rodgers had a medical appointment on Oct. 4 and was not with the team for practice the following day, when a somber Bowles revealed that Rogers was dealing with what he characterized as a “serious” illness. Rodgers had not been at practice since.“Any time you get somebody who gets sick on you or has some type of illness, you worry about him wholeheartedly,” Bowles said. “The job doesn’t matter, it’s all about the person, getting healthy. It’s a big relief for us.”
