NFL Free Agency Rumors: New York Jets interested in Brandon LaFell

The free agent market for wide receivers has been setting no one on fire and proof that is the fact that Carolina Panthers receiver Brandon LaFell is a hot commodity. Well, hot commodity in technical terms as he’s been brought up with the likes of the Patriots, Broncos and Jets connected but hasn’t yet found a team.

According to Manish Mehta from the New York Daily News, the Jets have had conversations with Brandon LaFell but they’ve not been in person and he’s not scheduled to be be visiting them on Friday.


New York is desperate for receiving help, even after signing Eric Decker to a big contract. They need someone else to be on the field so that Decker isn’t double-teamed and rendered useless.

That may be LaFell, but the fact that Brandon LaFell is a top option on the receiver market seems to highlight how underwhelming said market has become.
