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.

New York Jets Free Agent Target: Emmanuel Sanders?

A closer look at wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders, a potential target for the New York Jets in free agency

One name that has been frequently associated with the New York Jets this offseason is Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver, Emmanuel Sanders. With four seasons under his belt, Sanders is about to hit the free agent market for the first time in his career. In our roundtable last week, salary cap expert, Joel Corry, discussed the type of contract he is likely to receive:

 I would look for upper echelon #2 WR money with the Brian Hartline neighborhood ($6-$6.25M per year/$12.5M guaranteed) as my target.

Should the Jets consider making a push for him at this type of money? Let’s take a closer look at Sanders:

New York Jets – Picturing A Pragmatic Off-Season Approach

Joe Caporoso on the New York Jets taking a pragmatic approach this off-season

Since there are no games this weekend (sorry Pro-Bowl), we are going to pass on our regular 12 Pack and do a quick overview on the Jets off-season approach instead. The 12 Pack will be back next Sunday with Super Bowl predictions and Jets observations.

For the first time since the off-season heading into the 2008 season, the New York Jets are flush with cap space (likely in the excess of 40+ million) and draft picks (8-12). This is both an exciting and encouraging thing for the further development of a young, ascending team who posted a relatively surprising 8-8 record in 2013. However, this type of financial and roster flexibility doesn’t need to lead into foolish overspending and shouldn’t have fans focused on “name” players who aren’t likely or smart targets.
