Jets tight end Jace Amaro struggled mightily in his rookie year, dropping six of 52 passes thrown his way, the highest drop percentage of any tight end with at least 10 catches, reports ESPN.com. But the website said if offensive coordinator Chan Gailey employs his spread attack, it will benefit Amaro because he played in a similar offense at Texas Tech.

"Unless he struggles with the new system, Amaro should overtake [Jeff] Cumberland as the primary tight end," the report said.

Amaro (6-5, 265) played just 34 percent of the snaps as a rookie, catching 38 passes for 345 yards and two touchdowns.
