Jets believe James Jones has ability to be a top 5 receiver in football
Listening to satellite radio in my car i caught the interview half ass but i think it was chris mortensen ... said the Jets as well as a few other teams viewed James Jones as high as a #1 receiver. Apparently he was the Jets back up plan if Santonio deal didn't get done. Analyst on radio then said if James Jones straightens out his drops he's easily a Steve Smith (Panthers) type of guy. Word is the Eagles (what a shocker) are interested in him in replacing Desean Jackson incase a deal doesn't come into place. If that happens Desean is now avbailable for a established player and a #2-3 pick or straight up for a #1 pick. Eagles don't beliebe Desean is worth the money since he caught less than 50 passes last year even though his Yards Per is as high as anybody.
I hope the Jets bag Jones within the next day or 2. Aaron Rodgers said before the superbowl the Packers used to watch film and be marveled at the fact he catches up to balls that look overthrown. Charles Woodson said prior to the superbowl that Jones destroys all their corners in practice and he's impossible to contain 1 on 1. A lot of teams are high on him and his value is increasing as each day that passes. The only issue is that the kid has a ring already and what he's really interested in is a nice pay day. I hope we can find a way to bring him in. We'll lose the run blocking Braylon gave us but he's FAR more explosive. Just needs to hold on to that ball ... he's got incredible hands its his lack of focus. I seen him make ridiculous catches and then miss easy ones. Bring him in Tanny!
