NFL Draft Rumors: New York Jets meeting with Mike Evans

The New York Jets are starting to make changes that ensure this will be a huge make or break season for those in charge. Rex Ryan is set up to win his way into a bigger contract, but he’s also in a position where another losing season likely won’t be tolerated.

Because of this, the team has added Eric Decker as a receiving threat and signed Michael Vick as a potential starter and a mentor for Geno Smith. With Vick and Decker in town, the Jets appears to be going for the trifecta and are going to meet with top wide receiver prospect Mike Evans in the near future.

The Jets have Decker but still need more receiving threats to put around him. Adding Evans shows that New York is serious about staying in game offensively, or closing them out that way.

New York isn’t a lock to draft Evans, but he could be on the board for them and it’s not hard to believe he wouldn’t make it past them.
