3. Top landing spots for Allen Robinson – New York Jets
You can surely sense a trend here as all three of the teams linked to Robinson thus far are ones with promising young quarterbacks in need of a good No. 1 receiver. The New York Jets certainly fit this trend as well with second-year quarterback Zach Wilson in dire need of a top-flight pass catcher.
Corey Davis was initially targeted to be this guy after signing a three-year deal with New York last spring but he was underwhelming as the Jets’ top receiver. Rookie Elijah Moore also flashed a strong connection with Wilson but is more effective working out of the slot than on the perimeter.
Adding a guy like Robinson to the receiver room would push Davis and Moore down the depth chart, theoretically making all of the Jets’ receivers more effective. New York’s offensive system is also an innovative one that coordinator Mike LaFleur imported from San Francisco and could help Robinson put up huge numbers for the Jets.
Much like Jacksonville and Chicago, however, the Jets are still quite a ways off from contending for a Super Bowl title. Given the fact that Robinson is set to turn 29 and has only appeared in two playoff games, it wouldn’t be shocking to see him put a higher emphasis on playing for a winner.
