Mike Garafolo of NFL Network made light of the release.
Gang Green signed Pierre Desir with the expectation that he could improve their cornerback room as a starter. However, his season fell way short of expectations. Even worse, his effort on the field has come into question several times.
Desir was a standout for the Indianapolis Colts in 2018. He has taken major step backs in 2019 and 2020.
In 2020, Desir has allowed 10.3 yards per target plus a passer rating of 110.3. He has also allowed four touchdowns, a 76.5 completion percentage, and 13.5 yards per target. Quite often, Desir would be seen playing ten yards off the line of scrimmage.
The Jets continue to struggle at finding a replacement for Darrelle Revis.
Many people including myself thought this was a reasonable gamble. Obviously, Pierre Desir didn’t fit the part. Funny enough, Gregg Williams‘ defensive genius attracted Desir to New York.
