The Jets, and Giants, are “in the mix” for WR James Jones (Pauline, March 11).
In 2013, with the Packers, Jones had 59 receptions for 817 yards and three touchdowns. In his seven year career, all with the Packers, he has 37 touchdown receptions and over 4,000 yards receiving.
Brian Bassett, TheJetsBlog.comRather than re-hash too much, be sure to read Bent’s thoughts on Jones here.
Eric Decker is the best of the group, but unlike Vincent Jackson or Mike Wallace in year’s past there are no hyper-productive and/or hyper-talented young receivers on this year’s market. Instead there are a number of productive players that could be fits for the Jets, but should not expected to be saviors. James Jones and Golden Tate are players that might project well with the Jets, but while they are both productive the Jets will still need to consider using some early draft picks on a very talented receiver class to quickly round out what might be a solid group of receivers from WR1 – WR4.
