If there’s anything to take away from the 2013 NFL offseason, it would be the New York Jets didn’t do much to improve an offense that ranked 30th overall last season–which could make this upcoming season an interesting one. While the quarterback battle between Mark Sanchez and Geno Smith will certainly be an interesting one to keep an eye on throughout the season, it could be even more interesting considering their lack weapons at wide receiver–especially if Santonio Holmes misses the first couple of weeks.
One of the top New York Jets rumors this week involves Holmes and how he apparently told friends that he expects to miss at least four games this season–which is the last thing the team wants to hear with the regular season kicking off in one month. New York was already in desperate need of help at the wide receiver position and even though he may not be one of the top wideouts in the league–Holmes was still the best option for the Jets in the passing game.
If Holmes does in fact miss at least four games–there’s no telling what to expect from the Jets in the passing game this season.
It was no secret that Holmes’ foot injury was serious and to make the situation even worse–there’s a chance he may not be able to suit up at all during the 2013 season. Only time will tell before we find out what’s in store for Holmes, but based off early indications–it certainly doesn’t look good for the wideout.
