The New York Jets have made many additions to their offensive skill positions this offseason. To be exact, they have added two quarterbacks (Vick, Boyd), five receivers (Decker, Ford, Saunders, Evans, Enunwa), two running backs (Johnson, Richardson) and one tight end (Amaro). Let’s look through some of their formations from 2013 and how they can be utilized with the new additions.
Also check out myself, Connor Rogers and Chris Nimbley featured on the Jets official website talking about the team’s quarterback battle. We have more segments in the coming days discussing the rest of the roster, so stay tuned. A big thanks to Eric Allen and the Jets organization for interviewing us…

Joe Caporoso on the New York Jets perceived “need” at wide receiver
Heading into the NFL Draft, the New York Jets two biggest needs were tight end and cornerback. After those two, outside linebacker, safety and wide receiver fell in some order of similar importance. The Jets added their tight end in the second round by stealing Jace Amaro with the 49th pick and added a third and sixth rounder at cornerback (we’ll discuss McDougle and Dixon more in the coming days). However, let’s today focus on their current collection of wide receivers and pass catchers in general…and why this “need” may be overstated.
