The New York Jets chose Stephen Hill in the second round of the 2012 draft and expected him to become an important part of their offense at MetLife Stadium.
But after just 45 catches for 594 yards and four touchdowns in two years, the Jets have seemingly lost all patience with Hill and could be set to cut the 22-year old.
Hill's performance at the combine rocketed him up the draft boards showing great natural athleticism that got the scouts and coaches talking.
However, Hill hasn't been able to turn those physical gift into cold hard stats or a solid, dependable receiver in his time in New York.
According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, the Jets’ decision men are skeptical of Hill’s ability to become a reliable player, and that the organization are near the end of their rope with Hill.
The Jets general manager John Idzik wasn't with the team when they drafted Hill and doesn't think much of the receivers ability so could be set to let him go and draft a replacement in a draft class that is stocked with receivers.
This all comes as a kick to the gut for Jets fans, as the Chicago Bears picked up Alshon Jeffrey two places after New York chose Stephen Hill.
