The New York Jets could be a great team if they just had some offensive weapons to use. While Mark Sanchez is the Anti-Christ to Jets fans, he’s being unfairly crucified thanks to the fact that he’s had virtually no one to throw the ball to since he arrived in New York.
A washed up Braylon Edwards, a lethargic Santonio Holmes and something called David Clowney do not make a Super Bowl caliber receiving corps but those are the names of Jets receiving targets over the last few years. But this offseason may see a violent shift, as GM John Idzik may be going after some big fish in free agency.
The Daily News reported in February that the Jets covet Sanders and Jeremy Maclin … Idzik possibly smells a bargain in Nicks … There’s reunion potential for Idzik and Tate here, as the two were together in Seattle.
Eric Decker and Julian Edelman could also be on that list as the receiving class this year is deep. The Jets will be complete and utter failures if they don’t grab at least one big name free agent receiver, as no one can throw tot he types of targets the Jets have currently.
