The New York Jets WRs will be learning from one of the best of all time in 2019. Here are all the details on the latest addition to the Jets’ coaching staff.

The New York Jets have a very young team heading into the 2019 season, so bringing in veterans to influence the team is a wise choice, and the team has wisely extended that philosophy to the coaching staff too.

Former Pittsburgh Steelers legend Hines Ward has been with the Jets as an intern for the entirety of training camp, and this past week, GM Joe Douglas is proud to announce that the Super Bowl Champion is joining the Jets as a full-time coaching assistant.

During his days as a player, Ward was a rugged player and a hard worker, so joining a Jets team with an untested wide receiving corps will help the team entirely, and Robby Anderson couldn’t be more excited.

“He’s a great resource because he’s done it at a high level consistently. He’s a future Hall of Famer, so what more can I ask for?” — Via Olivia Landis, New York Jets team reporter.

While there’s still plenty more growing that Hines needs to do as an assistant before he can move on to any kind of true coaching or coordinating job, he was a great player and can be a great influence on this young Jets team.

While the team has plenty of talent, they haven’t yet learned how to win at the NFL level, and adding Ward will help the teams toughness, a much-needed asset for a team to win in the NFL.

Good NFL teams usually have strong supporting staffs and the addition of Hines Ward is a great sign that the team is truly moving in the right direction. If Ward can influence the WR group the way we expect, it’s another positive sign that could help Sam Darnold become a breakout star in 2019.
