Corey Davis inks deal with Jets

Corey Davis to sign with the Jets

March 15, 2021

The New York Jets upgraded their passing attack when they agreed to a deal with free agent wide receiver Corey Davis on Monday. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the two sides agreed on a three-year, $37.5 million deal that includes $27 million guaranteed.

As the No. 5 overall pick in 2017, expectations were high for Davis entering the league, but he underwhelmed with the Tennessee Titans his first few years. Working in tandem with receiver A.J. Brown, he had his career-best campaign last season, making 65 grabs for 984 yards and five touchdowns. Questions remain about Davis, though, mainly due to his inconsistency throughout his career.

Davis will likely play across from Denzel Mims while Jamison Crowder handles the slot. Not a bad trio, but their success will largely depend on who the Jets ink at quarterback and whether they boost their offensive line.
