The Jets are interested in a trio of wide receivers, including Miles Austin, who was just released by the Cowboys (Rapoport, March 12).
The team is also interested in James Jones, who recently played with the Packers. He has not scheduled a visit with the team yet (Mehta, March 12).
The Panthers are likely cutting Steve Smith. The Ravens, Raiders and Bucs are interested (Jones, March 12). The Jets do have interest in former-Panthers WR Brandon LaFell, but he’s visiting New England on Wednesday (Costello, March 12).
Brian Bassett, TheJetsBlog.comThe Jets have a real need to get better through free agency at wide receiver so while they have been quiet so far, we expect things to pick up for them rather soon.
If Decker made NY his first spot to visit then that is a pretty good sign about both sides intent. With players like Jones and Decker, not to mention Steve Smith coming available, the Jets would we wise to start making some noise.
If Decker slips the net or proves wants too much expect John Idzik to round on Jones.
