CORTLAND − Rookie tight end Jace Amaro may have caught 106 passes last season for Texas Tech, but he’s having a tough time making catches in training-camp practices with the Jets. Amaro has had some issues with drops early in camp, which continued in his rough outing on Wednesday, after he sat out Tuesday’s practice with a minor knee injury.
The second-round pick dropped a pass from Geno Smith early in team drills and later fell down on a pass from Michael Vick that resulted in an interception. He also is still working on learning the offense, and admitted to making some mental mistakes.
“I missed practice yesterday, was a little bit behind today,” Amaro said. “Kind of over-thought some stuff and got some plays wrong.”
