Jace Amaro Getting Attention for Good Reasons

New, comments

Early in training camp, there seems to be buzz growing around third year tight end Jace Amaro.

This is an important year for Amaro after a sophomore campaign lost to injury. The note about his blocking is intriguing. I am not expecting Amaro to turn into a stellar blocker. It isn't his game, and it isn't why the Jets will have him in the lineup. He doesn't need to be spectacular, though. If he can get his blocking to passable, it opens up real possibilities in the offense. The Jets will likely move Amaro around to create favorable matchups, but showing anything as a blocker will increase the ability to keep him in-line and line up against linebackers.
