Former Ohio State WR goes from undrafted to starting PR for Jets
Jalin Marshall is electric. Marshall, a former Ohio State wide receiver, never put together a standout season as a pass-catcher. His best season came in 2015 when he caught 36 passes for 477 yards and five touchdowns.
What Marshall does possess, though, is speed and a pure ability to make plays with the ball in his hands. After going undrafted in this past year’s NFL Draft – a year in which he decided to go pro after his redshirt sophomore season – Marshall has been named as the New York Jets’ starting punt returner for Week 1.
Bowles said Jalin Marshall is the punt returner this week. #nyj
