TE Jace Amaro continues to improve with every game he gets under his belt. The New York Jets tight end continues to show flashes of exactly why the team drafted him. With his size, route running and ability to use his big body to plow through defenders, Amaro can be a hidden gem for the Jets this upcoming season as long as he keeps progressing.

Against the Cincinnati Bengals, he ended the night going 2-for-2 in receptions resulting in 24 yards. Sure, it’s not monster stats, but it shows signs of improvement for the once-struggling rookie. It’s common knowledge that he was having a tough transition understanding the complexity of the Jets’ offensive playbook, but the fact that he looked solid against the Bengals speaks highly of his future.

Once Amaro gets to the level where everything becomes second nature to him, it will bode well for the Jets. It’s been too long that they’ve been missing that extra dimension on offense, and they hope Amaro can fill that void. All it will take is just a little more patience and some more opportunities on the field.

Another key area that Amaro continues to do well in is run blocking. It’s no secret that the Jets plan to run the football a whole lot this upcoming season, and blocking is crucial for that to succeed. Amaro has done well in sticking to his assignments and creating the necessary zone gaps to enable the rushing attack to take off. He also did a splendid job against the Bengals, and had no issues at all in keeping defenders at bay.

It looks like Amaro is improving with every passing week. The NFL regular season is just a few weeks away and if he continues the trend he is on, he will definitely be ready to start helping the Jets succeed once the games actually start to count.

Brandon Marshall Tells Rich Eisen He Hasn't Spoken To Jay Cutler

During a recent appearance on ' The Rich Eisen Show', former Chicago Bears and current New York Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall was asked about his relationship with his old quarterback, Jay Cutler. Marshall, who has zero chill, replied that he had not spoken to Cutler in "two years." Naturally, Eisen was shocked and mentioned that they were teammates just a season ago. Marshall essentially confirmed that they were not talking off the field during his last year in Chicago, but ultimately wished Cutler well.
