Currently ranked 29th in points per drive (1.18), 31st in third-down conversion rate (26.1%), and 31st in red-zone touchdown rate (25.0%), the New York Jets offense is desperately searching for a spark.
They have a potential solution patiently waiting on the bench: Mecole Hardman. The Jets’ 2023 free-agent pickup has only played 14 offensive snaps through the first two games. All 14 of those snaps came in garbage time against the Cowboys. Hardman is yet to play a snap while the outcome is still in doubt.
It’s true that Hardman has limitations in his game that should preclude the Jets from using him too much.
