Every year of Chris Herndon's short career has been 'the one' where he is supposed to break out and perform to his potential. He lost 2019 to suspension and injury, but was just plain bad in 2020, catching just 31 balls for 287 yards and three touchdowns despite being fully healthy. Sam Darnold and he never connected really, and every year under Adam Gase was a step backwards, but both are gone now, and the offense appears to be one which Herndon should do well in. Don't be taken in. Herndon is fool's gold, and the Jets know they cannot depend on him. Neither should you as anything but bench depth off the waiver wire. He has upside, but you cannot trust him. Herndon has been traded to the Vikings and will battle with Tyler Conklin for a role in the offense following the injury to Irv Smith Jr.
