The New York Jets are in dire straits at this early point in the NFL season.
Already playing with their third-string quarterback after Trevor Siemian suffered a devastating ankle injury and with Sam Darnold out due to mono, New York finished the first half of Monday’s game against the Cleveland Browns with negative-13 net passing yards.
It’s already some ugly football. Even before New York took to the field on Monday, they acquired injury-plagued veteran receiver Demaryius Thomas from the New England Patriots in a trade last week.
Thomas did not last a full half in a Jets uniform before leaving with a hamstring injury. He’s already been ruled out for the remainder of the game after catching one pass for negative-one yard.
We’re honestly not even sure what to do with this one. A four-time Pro Bowler with the Denver Broncos, Thomas suffered a torn Achilles as a member of the Houston Texans last season.
The former first-round pick was then signed off the street by the New England Patriots. However, he became expendable after they signed Antonio Brown.
Thomas was just traded to the Jets less than a week ago.
