New York Jets Passing Game Breakdown – Where Is Jace?

Joe Caporoso breaks down the New York Jets lack of targets for rookie tight end Jace Amaro

Last week against the Kansas City Chiefs, Jeff Cumberland played 53 snaps to Jace Amaro’s 35. He received two targets, both of which were incomplete while Amaro received zero targets. Over the first half of the season Cumberland has played 472 snaps (83%) and Amaro has played 235 snaps (41%). Amaro has caught 32 of his 39 targets (83%), while Cumberland has only caught 15 of his 30 targets (50%). More recently, Amaro has caught 26 of his last 30 targets and in four of the last five games he has been targeted at least four times, he has produced over 50 yards.
