New York Jets TE Jace Amaro Needs More Aggression
When you are an athlete like Jace Amaro, at 6-foot-5 and well over 260 pounds, you need to use your body to make plays. The New York Jets TE has yet to use his body to his advantage as he doesn’t aggressively go after the football when it’s thrown his way. One of the main reasons why Amaro was drafted by the Jets was to bring in a tougher mentality on offense at TE that’s been lacking for years. So far, he’s not playing up to his potential.
It’s well documented that Amaro has been struggling during training camp, as the transition from college football to the pros has been a difficult one for him. No one expects rookies to immediately grasp everything in a matter of weeks, but it is expected that they at least know the fundamental of using their body to make plays. At this point, it looks like it’s more of a confidence issue than anything else.
Many within the organization believe Amaro can be the next big thing on the Jets’ offense, but he’s holding himself back due to over-thinking and not letting the game come to him. If Amaro wants to learn a thing or two about being more aggressive, he should really take the advice of head coach Rex Ryan and actually spend a day watching tapes of Mike Ditka.
Everyone is positive that with time, Amaro will eventually get out of this funk he’s in and focus on contributing as much as he can to the Jets. One area he’s actually been doing well at is run blocking to support the heavy rushing attack that will come this upcoming season. With time, perhaps he’ll be that big-time difference-maker everyone envisioned him to be.
