Cornerback Dexter McDougle is on the outside looking in as even though he enters his third season with the New York Jets, things aren’t looking so good for his future on the team.
The New York Jets are currently in a full rebuilding mode and aren’t afraid of cutting ties with anyone if the organization feels they’re either overpaid or not carrying their weight. Cornerback Dexter McDougle hasn’t had any luck making an impact since the moment he was selected in Round 3 of the 2014 NFL Draft.
Whether it’s been his nagging hamstring injury or his lack of competitive play, McDougle is on the outside looking in with the Jets. In the grand scheme of things, it’ll be hard for McDougle to even remain on the final roster unless he has a training camp for the ages.
Below you’ll find McDougle’s complete training camp profile as he hopes to give the Jets reasons to keep him around. Things aren’t looking so good for him at this point in time but the franchise has kept him around heading into training camp to see if he can finally turn things around.

2016 SEASON REVIEW
Unfortunately, McDougle didn’t register any regular season stats last season.
2017 SEASON OUTLOOK
It would take a miracle for McDougle to see any regular season playing time since his career with the Jets has mostly seen him on the practice squad.
The truth of the matter is that McDougle has been a draft bust that never lived up to his pre-draft hype. In the NFL these days, you won’t make any impact unless you’re obviously on the gridiron and in McDougle’s case, he hasn’t seen much playing time at all in three years with the Jets. Again, it’s mainly due to his history of injuries and the fact that he’s not a good cornerback by any stretch of the imagination.
TRAINING CAMP PREDICTION
It’s hard to envision McDougle making the final 53-man roster of the Jets since they’re adamant about only keeping players around that are able to make plays and have a positive impact in the future. Unfortunately for McDougle, his time with the Jets will more than likely come to an end in training camp as he’s not worth keeping around for the long haul.
