2018
Cole is a safe bet to secure a roster spot after signing a one-year, $5.5 million contract with the Jets, but he's unlikely to see the field much barring injuries ahead of him on the depth chart. New York also signed Corey Davis and drafted Elijah Moore in the second round to pair with 2020 second-rounder Denzel Mims and incumbent slot man Jamison Crowder. Cole's best chance at playing time besides injuries would be beating out Mims and Moore, but the rebuilding Jets will likely prioritize the youngsters, so the former Jaguar will be hard-pressed to reach last year's totals of 55 catches, 642 yards and five touchdowns.
Cole has provided solid production over his first three seasons for a UDFA (104 catches, 1,600 yards and seven touchdowns), but he's buried on the depth chart and has been trending down since his rookie year. The 27-year-old finished 2019 with 24 catches for 361 yards and three touchdowns and was the team's clear fourth wideout behind D.J. Chark, Chris Conley and Dede Westbrook. The addition of second-round pick Laviska Shenault only further complicates Cole's path to playing time. The Jags retained his services for 2020 with a second-round tender as a restricted free agent, though production figures to remain minimal while entering camp as the team's fourth or fifth wide receiver.
An undrafted free agent darling in 2017 while logging 749 receiving yards, Cole's sophomore season saw him take a major step back as he was basically cut out of the offense by midseason. He was heavily involved early in the year, but was marred by fumbles and drops, leading to a drastic reduction in playing time. If Cole can solve the ball-security issues, he has a real chance to step in as Jacksonville's second or third receiver behind Dede Westbrook. Cole caught 38 passes for 491 yards last year in an anemic offense, despite going catch-less in five games, so the potential for production is clearly there. New quarterback Nick Foles should also provide some added stability and accuracy compared to the likes of Blake Bortles and Cody Kessler. Cole will be competing with D.J. Chark and Chris Conley, and the competition should start out on relatively even footing.
Cole, a 2017 undrafted free agent, took advantage of numerous injuries to Jaguars receivers last season to lead the team in receiving yards (748 on 42 receptions), but will have to compete with free agent acquisition Donte Moncrief and second-round pick D.J. Chark in 2018, in addition to Dede Westbrook. The 25-year-old demonstrated near-instant chemistry with quarterback Blake Bortles in his rookie season and very well may build on that performance with his pinpoint route running, but it's worth remembering that Leonard Fournette is still poised to power a run-heavy offense. Jacksonville has a bevy of talent at wide receiver and no clear-cut No. 1 option heading into the season, which could lead to a somewhat malleable depth chart. Cole's stock did get a major bump when Marqise Lee suffered a season-ending knee injury in late August. Seemingly locked in as a starter, Cole has a real shot to lead the team in targets.
