New York signs former first round pick Josh Doctson
The Jets are signing free agent Wide Receiver Josh Doctson. The move was announced by the team Saturday afternoon.
The former first round pick was chosen by the Washington Redskins with the 22nd overall selection in the 2016 NFL Draft. He played with the Redskins for three years, but was cut prior to the beginning of the 2019-2020 NFL season. He was later signed by the Minnesota Vikings after clearing waivers but he only played in one game and recorded no catches in his time in Minnesota.
In three seasons with the Redskins, Doctson played in 33 games and made 26 starts. He has 81 career receptions for 1100 yards and eight touchdowns. This news comes as New York is waiting to determine if they will re-sign Wide Receiver Robby Anderson, who is set to become a free agent this off-season.
