Ashtyn Davis hasn't been a "disappointment" for anything he's done on the field. In fact, he hasn't even been able to step foot on the field.

And that's the problem.

Davis has been sidelined for the entire offseason so far as he continues to rehab a foot injury he suffered last December. He had offseason surgery and the hope was that he'd be back in time for training camp.

Evidently, that hasn't happened.

Davis had an up-and-down rookie season as the former Cal star was still clearly adjusting to the speed of the NFL game. He's a fantastic athlete with a high ceiling, but he hasn't been able to show what he can do yet.

This summer was expected to be a crucial one for him, especially given the uncertain nature of the Jets' safety position.

Marcus Maye's future is very much up in the air and it seems unlikely that the Jets ultimately extend him, at least given how they handled his situation this offseason.

If Davis were to excel in 2021, it would make the team's decision to move on much easier. Unfortunately, he's already starting behind the eight ball.
