Jets shouldn’t be forced to choose specialists


As part of The Post’s 2022 NFL Draft preview, we take a look at what the Jets could do at each position. Today: specialists

It certainly looks like the Jets should invest in a kicker in the draft these years. Each season, they go through a rotating cast of contestants. It might be a wise investment to write one.

But that’s not likely this year. The Jets have signed Greg Zuerlein in free agency and brought back Eddy Pineiro, which ended the season strong for them. These two will face off in training camp.

Bettor Braden Mann is entering his third season after the Jets drafted him in the sixth round of the 2020 draft. He’s been inconsistent, but he’s not going anywhere. long snapper Thomas Hennessy is the oldest player on the team now with Marcus Maye faded away.

Braxton Berrios is back after making the All-Pro team as a returner last year, a rare continuation in that position for the Jets.

With all the seats filled on special teams and the Jets having a long list of offensive and defensive needs, Joe Douglas should not seek to add a specialist.

This does not mean that special teams will be ignored. Special Teams Coordinator Brant Boyer will push for players he thinks can help his coverage units and the Jets will surely consider special teams contributions on Day 3 of the draft.
