Joe Caporoso on the New York Jets building and keeping depth across their roster
The New York Jets have continued to aggressively add depth to their roster in the past week, signing Erin Henderson, Stevan Ridley, Joe Mays and bringing back Leger Douzable. The team has now added at least one veteran at every position this off-season, except outside linebacker/edge (a hint for the NFL Draft?). Depth is critical and something Jets fans shouldn’t be in a hurry to discard…

Joe Caporoso breaks down the tape on newly acquired New York Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall – What can he bring to the offense?
To say the New York Jets have lacked production from the wide receiver position in recent seasons would be an understatement. Eric Decker managed a respectable 74 receptions for 962 yards and 5 touchdowns in 2014 despite missing time with injuries and abysmal quarterbacking. However, prior to that here is the Jets leading receiver every season since Jerricho Cotchery eclipsed 1,000 yards in 2007:
- 2008: Jerricho Cotchery – 71 receptions, 858 yards, 5 touchdowns
- 2009: Jerricho Cotchery – 57 receptions, 821 yards, 3 touchdowns
- 2010: Braylon Edwards – 53 receptions, 904 yards, 7 touchdowns
- 2011: Santonio Holmes – 51 receptions, 654 yards, 8 touchdowns
- 2012: Jeremy Kerley – 56 receptions, 827 yards, 2 touchdowns
- 2013: Jeremy Kerley – 43 receptions, 523 yards, 3 touchdowns
- 2014: Eric Decker – 74 receptions, 962 yards, 5 touchdowns
Enter Brandon Marshall, who was acquired for a 5th round pick this off-season. Marshall has been over 1,000 yards in seven of his last eight seasons and exceeded ten touchdowns in three of those years. In 2014, a lung and rib injury kept him out of the final 3.5 games of the season but he still managed 721 yards and eight touchdowns. Marshall has found success throughout his career despite playing with an erratic Jay Cutler, Josh McCown, Matt Moore, Chad Henne, and Kyle Orton.
Let’s take a deeper dive into Marshall’s game and how it could be integrated into the 2015 New York Jets offense…
