NY Jets fans had high expectations for wide receiver Corey Davis entering this season. The former-Western Michigan star had a relatively disappointing start to his career after going fifth overall in the 2015 NFL Draft to the Tennessee Titans.

The big 6-foot-3 wideout had a bit of a breakout season in 2020, however, posting a career-high 984 yards and five touchdowns in 14 games. His 2020 Pro Football Focus (PFF) score was also an elite 86.9.

This past offseason, Jets general manager Joe Douglas signed Davis to a three-year, $37.5 contract that the Jets could exit after just two seasons for a profit, per OverTheCap.

Davis missed games here and there throughout his first season with the Jets but was eventually ruled out for the season in order to receive core muscle surgery.

With Davis now done for the season, the question arises: how was his first year with the Jets? Depending on who you ask, the answer may vary greatly.
