Braxton Berrios proved to be a legitimate New York Jets offensive weapon in 2021. After three years of working his way up depth charts, in both New England and New York, the Miami University product has finally found his niche.
Although he found himself snubbed for Pro Bowl honors, Berrios was named as the NFL’s first-team All-Pro kick returner. The Jets’ slot receiver led the league with a sparkling 30.4 kick return average in 16 games (28 attempts for 852 yards).
The kid’s top highlights of the year came late in the season when Trevor Lawrence and the Jacksonville Jaguars were in town. In New York’s 26-21 victory, Berrios bolted for an impressive 102-yard kick return to the house.
Now, the New England Patriots‘ sixth-round draft pick of 2018, who was claimed by Joe Douglas and the Jets early in 2019, enters the 2022 offseason looking to get paid.
And why not? The man should seek every last dollar as an independent contractor navigating his way through the league via hard work and dedication.
Whether or not Douglas and the Jets pony up the money for Berrios remains to be seen. Many believe the Jets have to let him walk, if another NFL team offers a higher-than-market price for the guy, while others think it’s important that Douglas doesn’t shortchange the man in negotiations.
Not only does Berrios have the special teams aspect of his game doing much of the talking, but he also contributed on offense in a unique and exciting way.
Once offensive coordinator Mike LaFleur started to use Berrios as the offense’s premier jet-motion weapon, Zach Wilson and the Jets’ offense began to take off. His absence in Week 18 against the Buffalo Bills made that point as obvious as anything.
