One of the ongoing themes of the off-season…or whatever you want to call the endless cycle of appeals, stays, and mediation, has been the New York Jets being linked to any big name receiver who could potentially be available. Most people are under the assumption that either Santonio Holmes or Braylon Edwards won’t return next year, which is likely correct. Brad Smith is also likely to leave for more money and a bigger role on offense somewhere else. The Jets did add two potential slot receivers in the draft by selecting Jeremy Kerley and Scotty McKnight but could use another free agent if Edwards or Holmes leaves along with Smith. If the Jets had to add one of these big name players at the receiver position, who would you prefer to see them sign?
- Plays when he wants to play
- Two different teams got rid of him last year and he looked done in Tennessee
- Still a vertical threat and was good enough to beat both Darrelle Revis and Antonio Cromartie deep for touchdowns last year
- He isn’t going to bring much over the middle or with his blocking.
- Can probably get him on a cheap one or two year deal.
- Very entertaining on Twitter
- Basically got himself kicked out of Cincinnati
- Coming off one of his least productive seasons
- Vertical threat who is more consistently passionate about the game than Moss.
- Jets would have to trade for him and he wouldn’t come as cheap as Moss or Burress.
- He hasn’t played a snap in two full seasons while sitting in jail and is going to be 34 years old
- Should be able to be signed on a relatively cheap, short-term deal
- Excellent size and red-zone presence
- Jets would have to trade for him and he would be the most costly out of any of these receivers
- Just turned 32 years old and is coming off a down season (although much of that blame could go to Jimmy Clausen)
- Passionate player but does have history of erratic (and violent) behavoir towards teammates
