It's no secret that the NY Jets have historically had issues when it comes to their wide receiver corps for years now. They haven't been able to find that difference-maker, a catalyst kind of wide receiver that can turn the tides in a football game towards leaving victorious. 2020 will be another year Jets fans would love to forget after a 2-14 season and well, we can only hope that 2021 can be one of redemption.
Having a bounce-back season after only winning a pair of football games the year before won't be easy, but so far, things are looking good based on the offseason the Jets have had and training camp. The Jets have a new coaching regime in place, a new potential franchise quarterback, and a lot of veterans ready to push the envelope towards making 2021 a bounce-back year. One of which is wide receiver Corey Davis that is already proving his worth.
So far in training camp, Davis has been getting a lot of praise and attention for everything he's been bringing to the table. He's hauling in tough catches and as of late, is making some serious noise in red zone formations. This could finally be an area of strength for the Jets if he's able to do this consistently once the regular season arrives.
Corey Davis emerging as red zone threat on the NY Jets
In an article written by Brian Costello of the New York Post, he confirmed via training camp that Davis continues to haul in touchdowns as he's making a name for himself where it matters most. For years now, the Jets haven't had a legit red zone threat and hopefully, Davis can step into such a role and dominate early and often this upcoming season.
Offensive coordinator Mike LaFleur plans to launch a West Coast offensive scheme which is perfect for Davis as it's a system he's been comfortable in for years now. In his four-year tenure with Tennessee Titans before coming to the Jets via free agency, Davis totaled 207 receptions, 2,851 receiving yards, and scored 11 touchdowns.
At just 26 years old, Davis is ready to begin fresh on a new team that is starving for some respect. A team that has for many years now been on the outside looking in. Considering how the NFL is indeed a passing league, if rookie quarterback Zach Wilson can get into a nice rhythm with Davis, it would undoubtedly help many Jets fans forget about last year.
Davis and the rest of his partners in crime on the Jets are all hoping for a better situation in 2021. They'll be playing hard, focusing on execution, and above all else, doing their part in a huge 2021 bounce back. Expect to see Davis be a major catalyst as he's ready to do whatever it takes to succeed in the city that never sleeps with hopes of putting the Jets back into the spotlight for all the right reasons.
