Perhaps no position received more of a makeover this offseason than wide receiver. The Jets added the likes of Corey Davis and Keelan Cole in free agency before selecting Elijah Moore in the second round of the 2021 NFL Draft.

All three players figure to play a role in one way or another on offense, and they'll be joined by the returning Jamison Crowder and Denzel Mims.

The Jets are five deep at wide receiver which is great news for a passing attack that struggled mightily in 2020, but bad news for other receivers on the roster.

One player in particular who seems to have already been replaced this offseason is Braxton Berrios.

Berrios has spent the last two seasons with the Jets serving as a punt returner and backup slot receiver. He actually received significant playing time in 2020 following a few injuries at the position hauling in 37 catches for 394 yards and three touchdowns.

However, don't expect that to carry over into 2021.

The addition of Elijah Moore gives the Jets two excellent slot options to take over for Berrios on offense, not to mention that Keelan Cole also has experience in the slot.

And on special teams, Moore returned punts at Ole Miss and the Jets added a few other players such as Matt Cole, Austin Walter, and even Keelan Cole who could potentially take over that job.

Berrios' skill set is redundant at this point. He'll be fighting an uphill battle to make the 53-man roster.
