Jace Amaro's Position Coach Pleased With Progress

Rich Schultz

Rookie tight end Jace Amaro received a few headlines for some rough OTA stretches. His position coach seems happy with his work thus far, however.

“He’s lined up everywhere,” Hagen said this week, after the third and final OTA session that was open to reporters. “He’s lined up flexed out, hand down, out by himself (on the) single-receiver side, on the three-receiver side, on the two-receiver side. We use him everywhere we can use him. So we have asked him to do a lot, and we expect him to do a lot. He’s asking that of himself, and he’s delivering, too. It’s been fun to watch him.”

Hagen called Amaro “another dynamic weapon” for the Jets’ offense.

Amaro is going to have a lot on his plate as a rookie. The way the team is currently structured, defenses are going to key on Eric Decker. Amaro is perhaps the one other piece with the ability to take heat off Decker and become a staple of the passing game. Chris Johnson and Jeremy Kerley will help, but they are supporting parts. Amaro can be a big part of the passing game.

Of course he also plays a position that typically transitions slowly to the NFL in part due to all of the responsibilities mentioned above so there are no guarantees how he will do as a rookie.
