Quinton Patton joins Jets

The New York Jets signed wide receiver Quinton Patton, formerly of the San Francisco 49ers.

What It Means:

Patton will reunite with wide receivers coach John Morton, who he spent the first two years of his career with in San Francisco. Over 14 games last season, Patton set career highs with 37 catches and 408 receiving yards. He'll likely compete to be the third or fourth receiver on the Jets' depth chart.

Among 56 wide receivers with between 25 and 75 targets last year, Patton's 0.42 Reception Net Expected Points (NEP) per target was seventh-lowest, though he played in an offense that generated the fifth-least opponent-adjusted Passing NEP per play.
