New York Jets Target – Golden Tate

Joe Caporoso breaks down potential New York Jets free agent target, WR Golden Tate

Considering the New York Jets are unlikely to pursue Eric Decker, Golden Tate is arguably the best available option for the team at wide receiver in free agency. You can make the case for Jeremy Maclin but he is unlikely to leave Philadelphia and has injury concerns. You can make a case for Hakeem Nicks, if you think he can regain his 2011 form. Yet, if we are looking at the past season and a general improvement rate over the past couple of seasons, Tate is the top option.

Why are we such big fans of this under 6 foot receiver who is yet to register a 1,000 yard season? Here is an overview of Tate:

2014 NFL Combine – Five Thoughts

Mike O’Connor gives five thoughts after viewing the 2014 NFL Combine

NFL Draft prospects are put under extreme pressure during the NFL Combine to reach expectations that the media and evaluators set. Imagine the awkwardness in knowing what kind of standards your athleticism can manage, only to be pummeled by lofty expectations set by random people. The whole Combine process is such mystique on the surface, even though it doesn’t have to be and frankly, it’s not meant to be.

Who Goes Where? The Ideal New York Jets Offseason (Part One)

Dalbin Osorio with part one of his ideal offseason for the New York Jets

NFL Free Agency, or Christmas as it’s known around the TOJ office, begins March 11th, 2014 at 4:00 PM. We’ve been chronicling the available free agents that the Jets could potentially target all off-season long so far (we only have Safeties left), but now it’s time to focus on the actual holes that the Jets will have to fill. I’ll be outlining the current 53 man roster (including players on IR) with predictions on whether they will be wearing Green and White next season and, if not, where they will end up. If I note that they will be released or traded, the cap savings will be written at in parenthesis (all cap numbers are from Spotrac.com). The second part of this two part series will deal with how I would ideally fill the holes the Jets will need to fill, very similarly to this amazing piece done by Cole Patterson. As always, your comments will be appreciated.

Debunking The “#1” Wide Receiver Myth

Joe Caporoso on the New York Jets mythical search for a number one receiver

The New York Jets need wide receivers. More broadly, the New York Jets need pass catchers. They need tight ends. They could use a running back who could be a factor in the passing game. This isn’t news to anybody who watched the team last season, or the season before…or the season before that.

The quarterback play has been substandard. Nobody can argue that. Yet, the reality is the Jets likely starter in 2014 is a second year quarterback, who finished 2013 relatively strong but needs some targets. The Jets cannot afford to burden him with a bottom three group of wide receivers and tight ends…again.
