WATCH: Former Clemson WR with TD catch

by -

New York Jets quarterback Josh McCown connected with former Clemson receiver Charone Peake on 4-yard pass for Peake's first touchdown catch of the preseason Saturday night versus the Tennessee Titans:

Later in the night, the Dorman product added a tackle.

Peake was listed on the second-team depth chart earlier this week and posted 19 catches for 186 yards last season.

His play in-game seems to be following his practice performance, which was noted by recently.

"I've been trying to take advantage of everything given to me," Peake said. "The biggest change is I feel like I'm a little bit more smarter this year. I'm understanding coverages. Understanding a lot more that's going on, rather than just what I have on a play. I understand the whole concept."

The touchdown Saturday was not Peake's first pro touchdown overall, however, as the last time he found the endzone last season on a 40-yard fumble return versus the Seattle Seahawks and in the preseason with a 17-yard touchdown pass from Geno Smith.
