Jaiquawn Jarrett: 2014 and Beyond

New, comments
Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

Jaiquawn Jarrett had a career day in the Jets' surprising win over the Steelers in November. He had 10 tackles, 2 interceptions, a sack, and a fumble recovery starting in place of benched rookie Calvin Pryor. There was no chance Jarrett could continue making plays at that rate, but it was worth wondering whether he could build on that performance and become a contributor.

Jarrett was pretty quiet from that point on. His only real notable contribution was missing the tackle on Jairus Wright's 87 yard overtime touchdown for the Vikings Week 14. Jarrett ended up missing the last two weeks of the season likely due to a shoulder injury.

Most players who suit up in the NFL never even have anything resembling that game against the Steelers. Jarrett can always look back on that. As far as things go for the Jets, though, it might be time to move on. He was drafted in 2011. The Jets are his second team. He hasn't shown a whole lot outside of that one game to look like he has starter potential, and he doesn't contribute on special teams to add a lot of value as a bottom of the roster guy.
