Jets did not even put in a waiver claim for Dante Pettis, the Browns and Patriots did

Dante Pettis Jets 49ers
The New York Jets should have put in a waiver claim for former second round pick Dante Pettis. He was claimed by the Giants, and two other teams put in a waiver claim. Why didn’t the Jets put in a claim?

Yesterday, I wrote an article about how the New York Jets needed to claim Dante Pettis. I wrote a piece after the former 2nd round pick was released by the San Francisco 49ers.

The Jets had the first waiver wire claim in the NFL, they have dibs to any player via the waiver wire. Joe Douglas the Jets GM said he needs to do more to get Sam Darnold and Adam Gase help. He said this a few hours after Pettis was released.

So I assumed, being that Pettis was a former second round pick, they would put in a waiver claim for the speedy wide out.

Pettis has 38 career receptions and 576 yards and 7 total touchdowns. In 2018, Pettis as a rookie was pretty damn impressive. He hauled in 27 receptions for 467 yards and 5 touchdowns.

The Jets on the other hand have been banged up bad. and only have a few wide outs over 100 yards. Their leading wide out is Jamison Crowder who has 383 yards, with Braxton Berrios second with 210 yards. Everyone after that have peanuts for yards. The Jets could have landed Pettis but they failed to put in a claim.

The Giants though did, and were rewarded him. If the Giants did not put in a claim. The Patriots would have landed Pettis. The Patriots have a 2-5 record, and also put in a waiver claim. We are learning the Browns also put in a waiver claim for Pettis.

Pretty wild, but it sounds like the Jets did not want to get out of the race for Trevor Lawrence.
