The NY Jets will need these three offensive players to step up in 2020
The NY Jets had a multitude of issues that hindered the team’s overall success throughout the 2019 season.
Aside from an obvious lack of talent at various positions across the board, specifically at offensive line and cornerback, the Jets also dealt with an unusually large amount of injuries, which certainly didn’t make things easier.
Overall, however, the Jets simply lacked production, which led to a disappointing 7-9 record and yet another season that ended with the team missing the playoffs. Because of this, it was clear that things needed to change, or, perhaps in better terms, things needed to improve.
And although any type of future success remains to be seen, it does, in fact, appear that newly minted general manager Joe Douglas did make improvements to the roster at multiple positions of need.
For example, Douglas bolstered the offensive line, signing free agents such as Connor McGovern, Greg Van Roten, and George Fant, while re-signing Alex Lewis. The Jets also used the No. 11 overall pick on towering offensive tackle Mekhi Becton.
The defense was also addressed in the offseason, as the team signed cornerback Pierre Desir before drafting versatile defensive back Ashtyn Davis and cornerback Bryce Hall.
Clearly, the Jets have added talent to the roster throughout the offseason. These new additions along with weapons the Jets already possessed should aid in turning things around for the team.
However, production must be seen on the field for that to take place and the Jets will need certain players to step up in order to find that success.
Let’s take a look at three offensive players the Jets will need to step up to find success in 2020.
