No tender for Jordan Shipley
I know this isnt "big" FA news, especially among the crack group of Jets beat writers, but I know from pervious posts that some of you guys share my feelings on this guy.
27 years old, UFA, had 50+ catches as a rookie, torn ACL but came back for the last few games for jacksonville and did very well. Slot WR who also returns punts.
This is the type of player we need here - he is a football player, not a track star and is arguably 20 times the player that Clyde Gates is.
He is cheap, works hard, has great hands and knows how to get open - plus he would solve our punt return issues.
I would love to see him in a Jets uniform in 2013.
