Jermaine Kearse believes that chemistry will define the wide receiver corps of the New York Jets who could surprise this upcoming season.
When one looks at the wide receiver corps of the New York Jets, there is optimism in the air that the unit can be a strength again in 2018. It’s all about execution and ensuring that everyone does their part to keep those chains moving and of course, score touchdowns consistently.
That was a big problem last season as the Jets wide receiver corps was decent at best, with Robby Anderson leading the way. So far, the Jets are already dealing with injuries within the positional group to Quincy Enunwa and Terrelle Pryor.
Jermaine Kearse, likely to be the No. 2 receiving option on the Jets right behind Anderson, believes that this positional group can indeed develop into something special thanks to chemistry. It’s a great sight to see since, if injuries do happen to those on top of the depth chart, the Jets have other players ready to step up.

In an article written by Brian Costello of the New York Post, here is what Kearse said about the Jets wide receiver corps:
“I really like our receiving corps,” Kearse said. “We’ve got a lot of guys who compete, who make plays. What I really like about our group is the chemistry we have with each other. We know there are only a few spots to make the team but we encourage each other. We want to see each one succeed. We try to push each other to be the best group we can be.”
Hopefully, everything falls into place and despite injuries to potential starters, players like Chad Hansen, ArDarius Stewart, and even Charone Peake are able to make the most out of the situation. With training camp underway and preseason football on the horizon for the Jets, it’s a good time to stand out for those that could potentially move up on the depth chart.
Overall, Kearse is right in that pushing each other towards being a successful unit will be vital to have all season long. Thanks to veterans like Kearse and others on the depth chart, it’s a solid group of individuals that want to push the envelope and be a big part of the Jets winning a lot of football games in 2018. It will all come down to everyone holding their own weight and holding each other accountable.
