Marcus Davis very talented, but . . . Dan Leberfeld

The Jets claimed wide receiver Marcus Davis off waivers today from the Football Giants.

The Virginia Tech-product is a stud athlete. He’s 6-3, 233 pounds with sub-4.6 speed. I remember watching the 40’s at the combine, and saying, “Who is that?”

But, there are red flags here.

Something happened with the Giants?

Why would they get rid of him so quickly? He was a priority undrafted free agent who got a $15,000 signing bonus.

Davis had some character concerns coming out of Virginia Tech.

It’s probably a good thing for the Jets to take a flyer on him considering his natural gifts, but it’s not a good thing if the Jets think they are smarter than other teams, and take the attitude – “I know the other team couldn’t get through to the guy, but we can.”

That mindset has gotten them in trouble in the past.
