Jets tight end Zach Sudfeld, a 6-7, 260-pounder, is getting some snaps with the starters as rookie Jaco Amaro struggles, reports The Star-Ledger. Sudfeld mostly runs with the second team and on special teams units. Signed midseason last year, Sudfeld said "it's interesting how much difference it makes knowing the playbook a little bit. Last year, coming out here a little bit, it was kind of learning on the fly. I just try to take advantage of the reps I get. "I do think that I have some ability to maybe stretch the field a little bit and kind of get out and run," he added. "I love playing in the West Coast [scheme]. It's a great offense for a tight end."
