Why Haven’t the New York Jets Acquired A Veteran Wide Receiver?
It’s no secret that the New York Jets could use some help on offense, and most of the talk this offseason has been about the inexperienced receiving corps which severely lacks talent and doesn’t seem to be getting much better. Rex Ryan is rightfully fed up with how unreliable his cast of receivers is.
“It has to get better. The fact that I’ve told everybody about it, is it putting pressure on them? Well, the NFL is a pressure game. You should catch the football,” Ryan said during minicamp.
But despite the fact that the Jets have obvious concerns at wide receiver, they haven’t gone after any of the veterans in free agency. My question is, why? The most reliable receiver on the roster is Santonio Holmes and his status for this year is still up in the air after suffering the dreaded Lisfranc injury last year. If Holmes isn’t completely healthy going into 2013, the Jets’ options at wide receiver are almost laughable. If they’re going to have any success in the passing game, they’ll need a veteran route-runner to anchor the receiving corps at all times.
There are still plenty of experienced receivers on the market: Brandon Lloyd, Laurent Robinson, Steve Breaston, Braylon Edwards, etc. It almost looks like the Jets have to go out and get one of these guys. So far, they’ve showed no intentions of doing so.
With the anticipation of sub-par quarterback play this year, a bad cast of receivers makes a dire situation even worse. The Jets need someone to step up and be a safety valve for whoever is playing quarterback. That could be an unexpected hero on the current roster, or more likely, someone they decide to go out and sign from free agency.
