Jets WR Josh Doctson Opts Out Of 2020 Season

Jets WR Josh Doctson officially opted out of the 2020 season before Thursday’s deadline. 

Doctson is the third Jets’ players to elect to sit out the season:

  1. OL Leo Koloamatangi
  2. LB C.J. Mosley
  3. WR Josh Doctson 

Doctson, 27, was taken in the first round out of TCU in 2016 by the Redskins. He signed a four-year, $10.049 million contract and was set to make a base salary of $1,820,406 for the 2019 season when the Redskins released him after the preseason. 

The Vikings later signed Doctson to a contract before placing him on injured reserve with a leg injury soon after. Minnesota designated him to return from injured reserve but ended up waiving him in November after appearing in just one game. 

Doctson signed a contract with the Jets back in February. 

In 2018, Doctson appeared in 15 games for the Redskins and caught 44 passes for 532 yards receiving (12.1 YPC) and two touchdowns.
