NFL Rumors: New York Jets to target signing Golden Tate, Hakeem Nicks and Emmanuel Sanders


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.

Per the New York Daily News:

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.

    New York Daily News sportswriters aren’t a legitimate source. They create rumors to write stories based on their own fabricated rumors! The only thing I use the Daily News for is to line the bottom of my parrot cage! Useless rag of a paper! Especially when it comes to the JETS!!!

      You are totally correct. Yellow journalism for sure. Example, to call someone washed up at 28 years is a farce( Braylon Edwards). That guy is by no means washed up and I bet in better condition than Josh Hill. How does it feel to profit on bashing negativity on another person without merit
