The seventh-rounder out of Clemson was receiving a tad too much hype upon his arrival to Florham Park, NJ. I mean let’s be honest, “How often do seventh-round wide outs excel at the next level?”
Equipping the hype makers with credence was his first taste of actual NFL action.
Peake was the lone Jets weapon to catch a touchdown against the Jags last Thursday. It came on a 3rd-and-9 late in the first half that followed J.Marshall’s explosive 84-yard kick return:

The route was a basic one and Geno delivered a perfectly placed ball, but Peake did a tremendous job back shoulder while getting both feet in bounds.
This kid could be the goods and he’s only the Jets fifth option.
